Statue

On the pedestal high 4 m is statue 2.7 m high. At what distance from the statue must observer stand to see it in maximum viewing angle? Distance from the eye of the observer from the ground is 1.7 m.

Correct answer:

x =  3.39 m

Step-by-step explanation:

α(x)=arctan4+2.71.7xarctan41.7x α(x)=arctan5xarctan2.3x  α(x)=5x2+25+2.3x2+5.29  α(x)=0  5x2+25=2.3x2+5.29  x=52.3=3.39 m



We will be pleased if You send us any improvements to this math problem. Thank you!
