The base of the Great Pyramid at Giza is a square that is 230 m on each side.

1.Find the height of the pyramid, knowing that when a person is standing at the center of its side he measures the angle of elevation of the apex to be 51 degrees with an error of +/- 0.5 degrees.

2. Build the model of the Great Pyramid at Giza using calculations from #1.

3. Use differentials to estimate the allowable error in the elevation angle that will ensure an error in the height is at most +/- 5m.
