If two runners determine the angle of elevation of a hot air ballon is 24.5 degrees and 22 degrees. The hot air ballon is 1500 feet directily above a point on the highway east of both runners. How far apart are they? A trigonometry question.

distance= 1500/tan221500/tan24.5
figure out how I did that in my head.
