A building cast a shadow 23 feet long when the angle of the sun is 52 degree. Find the height of the building to the nearest integer.

Let X be the height of the building
Tan 52 degree =x/23
23 tan 56 =294feet


x = 23 tan 52 = 29.4 feet
You made a decimal point error. I also don't thnk you meant to type tan 56
