The angles of dep

Answer :

From the condition given in the question the figure can be drawn as follows:


Let us assume AE be the building and CD be the tower


Let the height of the tower be h m


And horizontal distance between tower and building be x m


It is given in the question that,


BD = AE = 50 m


BC = CD – BD


= (h – 50) m


Now in right triangle ABC, we have:




x = h – 50 (i)


Also, in right triangle CDE, we have




Now putting the value of x from (i) we get:







= 25 × 4.73


= 118.25


Now, putting the value of h in (i) we get:


x = h – 50


= 118.25 – 50


= 68.25 m


Hence, height of the tower is 118.25 m and the horizontal distance between tower and building is 68.25 m
