A man standing 15.0 ft away from a light pole which is an additional 85.0 ft from a building tries to estimate the height of the building which he has lined up with the top the light-pole. Since he knows that the light-pole is 20.0 ft tall and his line of vision is 5.00 ft high, how tall is the building?
