**drwls**, Saturday, December 11, 2010 at 10:24amLet X be the distance from the closer point B) to the pole.

Let H be the height of the pole. You have two equations in two unknowns.

H/X = tan 37 = 0.75355

H/(X+6) = tan 30 = 0.57735

(X+6)/X = 1.3052 = 1 + 6/X

6/X = 0.3052

X = 19.66 m

H = 0.75355X = 14.8 m
