Answer :

To find: height of the tower.


Formula Used:



Explanation:



Let the height of the tower be h meters


Given, the angles of elevation of the top of a tower from two points are complimentary


ACB = θ and ADB = 90° - θ


In Δ ABC


tan θ = 4 / h


h = 4tan θ …… (1)


In ΔABD



( tan (90° - θ) = cot θ)


h = 9 (cot θ) ….. (2)





9 = 4 tan2θ


tan θ = 3/2


putting value of tan θ in 1


Height of tower


= 6m
