Draw  QM intersecting  RT  at M  and parallel to T

Then.....triangle RQM  is right  with  angle RQM  = 10°


Then  we have that


sin (RQM)  =  RM / QR   


sin (10°)  = RM / QR   


QR sin (10°)  =  RM


Then....the height of Q above the ground is given by :


RT  -  RM  =


RT - QRsin (10° )


cool cool cool
