Just really quick, my friend and I disagree on this problem. I got 1997 and he got 721.033
4. A surveryor is standing on horizontal ground level with the base of a skyscraper. The angle formed by the line segment from his position to the top of the skyscraper is 31 degrees. The height of the building is 1200 feet. Find the distance from the building to the surveyor to the nearest foot.
Never mind everyone. I graphed it and showed him I was correct.
