Observation tower

From the observation tower at a height of 105 m above sea level, the ship is aimed at a depth angle of 1° 49´. How far is the ship from the base of the tower?

Correct answer:

x =  198.6954 km

Step-by-step explanation:

h=105 m A=1/60+49/3600=10936000.0303  tanA=h:x  x1=h/tanA=h/tan0.0302777777778 =105/tan0.0302777777778 =105/0.000528=198695.43706 m  x=x1 km=x1/1000  km=198695.4371/1000  km=198.695 km=198.6954 km
