Steeple

Steeple seen from the road at an angle of 75°. When we zoom out to 25 meters, it is seen at an angle of 20°. What is high?

Result

x =  8.5 m

Solution:

x=21tan(75)tan(75)tan(20)1=8.5 mx= \dfrac{ 21 \cdot \tan (75^\circ)}{ \dfrac{ \tan (75^\circ)}{\tan (20^\circ)} -1} = 8.5 \ \text{m}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
