math word problem a building 240ft tall casts a 100 foot long shadow. If a person stands at the end of the shadow and looks up to the top of the building, what is the angle of the persons eyes to the top of the building(to the nearest hundredth of a degree)?(assume the persons eyes are 5 feet above fground level)
tanØ = (240-5)/100 , remember his eyes are 5 ft above ground
tanØ = 2.35
Ø = 66.9°
