The CN Tower is 553m high. A person in a boat on Lake Ontario, at a point B due south of the tower, observes the top (T) of the tower at an angle of elevation of 8 degrees. At the same time, another person, at a point C on a bearing {S 85 degrees E } from the towerobserves an angle of elevation pf T to be 11 degrees. Calculate the distance BC between the 2 ppl.
