A flagpole casts a shadow 44 ft with the sun angle of elevation is 60.5 degrees. Find the height of the
flagpole and at what angle is the shadow twice as long?

  • math/trig - ,

    if the flagpole has height h,

    h/44 = tan 60.5°
    h = 77.77

    now you want the angle x where
    77.77/88 = tan x
    x = 41.5°
