At a distance of 56 feet from the base of a flag pole, the angle of elevationi to the top of a flag that is 3.1 feet tall is 25.6 degrees. the angle of elevation to the bottom of the flag is 22.9 degrees. the pole extends 1 foot above the flag. find the height of the pole.

Going 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
