- Math Gr12 (advanced functions) -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 12:21amI am visualizing something like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The statement "A tower is 65 m high" is misleading, since height is measured along a perpendicular.

In the next sentence you say "the vertical distance from the top of the tower to the ground is 59 m"

Thus I will assume that the "length" of the tower is 65 m.

So in effect you have a right angled triangle with hypotenuse 65, and opposite side 59

let the angle at the base be Ø

sinØ = 59/65 = .90769...

Ø = 65.2° making the obtuse angle 114.8°
