# 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°

PREVIOUSFrom a light-house, the angles of depression of two ships on opposite sides of the light-house are 30° and 45°. If the height of the light-house is 100 m, find the distance between the ships, if the line joining them passes through the foot of the light-house.NEXTA ladder is placed against a building, and the angle of elevation of the top of the ladder is 60°. The ladder is turned so that it is placed against another building on the other side of the lane and the angle of elevation, in this case, is 45°. If the ladder is 26 m long, then find the width of the lane.
