Leon wants to estimate the height of a building. Leon's eyes are 6 feet above ground. He stands 25 feet from the building and sights the top of the building at a 77° angle of elevation. What is the building's height to the nearest tenth of a foot?

Use tan  77            tan 77 = opp/adj        in the is example   opp = height of building (but you must add Leon's 6 ft height to the result)   and adj is the distanc from the building  (given as 25 feet)
