Two men on either side of the cliff 80 m high observes the angles of elevation of the top of the cliff to be 30° and 60° respectively. Find the distance between the two men.

Answer :

In fig. AB be the height of the cliff.

Let the distance between the two men is DC.

DC = m.


tan 60° =

√3 =

√3 = 80



tan 30° =


Adding eqn. (1) and (2) we get,
