    draw the figure. let h height of momnument. Let d be the distance from the bottom of the tower to the bottom of the monument.

    Draw a dotted horizonal plane from the top of the monument to the tower. Let the distance from this line to the top of the tower be 145-h

    from the lower triangle, d/145=sin(90-31) solve for d.
    Now knowing d, look a the top triangle (base dotted line
    d/(145-h)=sin((90-13) you know d, so solve for h.
