Homework Help: Math

Posted by jasmine on Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 10:26pm.

From an observation tower that overlooks a runway, the angles of depression of point A, on one side of the runway, and point B, on the opposite side of the runway are, 6 degrees and 13 degrees, respectively. The points and the tower are in the same vertical plane and the distance from A to B is 1.1 km. Determine the height of the tower.

Can someone help me solve this? I am confused on how this is laid out, can someone draw some kind of picture, i have no idea where to put the angles and tower/road.
