An idol 30m tall stands on a pillar 15 m high. Find the angle in degrees which the idol subtends at a point distant m from the base of the pillar.

Answer :


Let AB be the idol and BC be the pillar


So, AB = 30 m


and BC = 15 m


Distance from the base of pillar = 15√3 m


Now, In right ΔACD, we have







tan x = tan 30°


x = 30°


Hence, the angle subtends from the base of the pillar is 30°
