The angle of elevation from Mindy to a cell phone tower is 50°. If Mindy is standing 61 feet from the base of the tower, find the height of the cell phone tower.

We  know  the adjacent side  to the angle and we are looking for the opposite side (the height)....so we have :

 

tan 50°  =   opp  / 61     multiply both sides  by  61

 

61 *tan 50°   =  opp   ≈  72.7 ft
