h= 66 root 3 or 66 multiplied by the sq. root of 3.

first turn this into a triangle...

the base is 66 and you know two of the angles (30 deg. and 90 deg (the base and the ground)). Now this is a 30-60-90 triangle. the rules 4 30-60-90 is the base is x, the hyp. is 2x and the other leg is x multiplied by the sq. root of 3. you know x (66) so your answer is 66 multiplied by the sq. root of 3
