**Steve**, Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 11:18amGoing up from the bottom of the pole, let

A be the base of the pole

B be the bottom of the flag,

C be the top of the flag,

D be the top of the pole

Let E be where the observer is standing.

AE = 56

BC = 3.1

CD = 1

AB/56 = tan 22.9°

AB = 23.65

So, the pole is 23.65+3.1+1 = 27.75
