(a)Distance PT

(b)Height of the flagpole

(c)Distance QT.

**Steve**, Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2:14pmDraw a horizontal line from Q to the flagpole. Label the intersection S.

The height of the pole is thus 20+ST

since

SQ/ST = cot25

SQ/(ST+20) = cot65

equate and solve for ST

Now you can get SQ

PT^2 = SQ^2 + (ST+20)^2

QT^2 = SQ^2 + ST^2
