TV tower

Calculate the height of the television tower if an observer standing 430 m from the base of the tower sees the peak at an altitude angle of 23°.

Correct answer:

y =  182.5242 m

Step-by-step explanation:

x=430 m α=23   tan α = xy  y=x tanα=x tan23° =430 tan23° =430 0.424475=182.524=182.5242 m
