**Reiny**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 12:44pmmake a sketch, label the height as h

distance from last position to the tower as x

tan (alpha) = h/(x+a)

h = (x+a)tan alpha

in the same way

h = xtan beta

(x+a)tan alpha = xtan beta

x tan alpha - xtan beta = - a tan alpha

x(tan alpah - tan beta) = -a tan alpha

x = -a tan alpha/(tan alpha - tan beta)

x = a tan alpha /(tan beta - tan alpha)

h = xtan beta

= a tan alpha * tan beta/(tan beta - tan alpha)

as requested
