Corey spies a bald eagle in a tall tree. He estimates the height of the tree to be 80 feet and the angle of elevation to the bird from where he stands to be 65°. The leaves on the tree make it difficult for Corey to watch the bird, so he takes several steps away from the tree to get a better view. He now estimates his angle of elevation to be 41°.

How many feet did Corey step back to gain a better view of the bird? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth of a foot.

Finding this to the nearest hundredth of a foot is rediculus becasue all the given measurmennts are estimations.

It could not be accurate even to the nearest foot, but anyway....

Use trig to find x

then use trig to find x+y

Then subtract to find y
