TA and TB are two cables helping to brace a 500 ft radio tower, FT. If the angles which the cables make with the horizontal are 62 and 50 (degrees), find the distance between their anchor points

  • trig -

    The height of the tower is 500 ft. Assume the two cable are on opposite sides and are straight lines.

    The distances AF = 500 tan 62 and FB = 500 tan 50.

    Add them for the distances between the ground anchor points of the cables.
