As a hot-air balloon rises vertically, its angle of elevation from a point P on level ground d = 140 kilometers from the point Q directly underneath the balloon changes from 15°10' to 29°30' (see the figure). Approximately how far does the balloon rise during this period? (Give the answer to one decimal place.)
