A lighthouse standing on the top of a cliff is observed from two open boats (boats are not decked over) A and B in a vertical plane through the light house. The angle of elevation of the top of the lighthouse viewed from B is 16 degrees and the angles of elevation of the top and bottom viewed from A are 40 degrees and 23 degrees respectively. If the boats are 1320 ft. apart, find the height of the lighthouse and the height of the cliff.
