If the sun's rays are at an angle 60° then famous Great Pyramid of Egypt (which is now high 137.3 meters) has 79.3 m long shadow. Calculate current height of neighboring chefren pyramid whose shadow is measured at the same time 78.8 m and the current height of the nearby Mikerinovi pyramid which at the same time throws a shadow 35.8 m long.
