two points A and Bare 80 feetapart on the same side of A towerand on a horizontal line through its foot.if angle of elevation of the top of the tower at A is 21 degree and B is 46 degree find the height of the tower.

If B is at distance x from the tower of height h, h/x = tan 46° h/(x+80) = tan21° so, eliminating x, we get h/tan46° = h/tan21° - 80 Now just solve for h
