**Steve**, Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 12:42pmDraw a diagram. If the nearer point is a distance x from the base of the mountain, then the height h can be figured from

h/x = tan 43°

h/(x+235) = tan 30°

x = h/tan 43°

x = h/tan 30° - 235

h/tan 43° = h/tan 30° - 235

h = 235/(cot30° - cot43°)

h = 356.2 m

not much of a mountain.
