# Math

The top of a tree makes angles s and t with Points K and L on the ground, respectively, such that the angles are complementary. Point K is x meters and Point L is y meters from the base of the tree.

A)In terms of x and y, find the height of the tree. Include your work.
B)If t = 38° and y = 3 meters, calculate the height of the tree, rounded to two decimal places.
