Sun rays

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.

Correct result:

a =  136.4343 m
b =  61.9841 m

Solution:

k=137.3/79.3=13737931.7314 A=180/π arctan(137.3/79.3)=180/3.1416 arctan(137.3/79.3)59.9907 a=k 78.8=1.7314 78.8=136.4343 m
b=k 35.8=1.7314 35.8=61.9841 m
