From a point on the ground 12 feet in front of a building, the angle of elevation to the top of the building is 76 degrees. How tall is the building?

We can use the tangent  here

 

tan (76)  =   H / 12     where H is the building height........nultiply both sides by 12

 

12 * tan (76)   = H  ≈ 48.13 ft

 

 

cool cool cool
