# The angles of ele

In the fig let AB is the Tower of height h (m).
Since the tower is vertical to the ground.

∠ABC = 90°
In a right-angled triangle, we know,

In ∆ABD

tan α =

tan α =

h = 4 tan α …………(1)

In ∆ABC

tan (90°-α)=

We know tan(90°- θ) = cot θ

⇒ cot α =

⇒  h = 9 cot β ……….(2)

On multiplying eqn (1) and eqn (2), we get

h × h = 4 tan α × 9 cot α

h2 = 36 tan α ×  cot α
We know,

h2 = 36
h = ± 36

As the height cannot be negative.

⇒ h = 6m

Therefore the height of the tower is 6m.
