A rocket carrying a weather satellite is launched. As it moves through space, the rocket is tracked by two tracking stations located 24 km. apart, beneath the rocket. The 2 tracking stations both lie west of the launching pad. at a specific moment, the rocket's angle of elevation from Station X is 40 deg. while the rocket's angle of elevation from Station Y is 70 deg. Both tracking stations are west of the rocket at this moment. At this moment, what is the altitude of the rocket, correct to one decimal place?
