At a point A, 20

Answer :


The above diagram represents the problem in which C is the position of the cloud and D is the position of cloud's shadow.


Let AB = x


Let BC = h


As cloud is at a height of (20 + h) m from the water level. Its shadow will be (20 + h)m deep in the water.


So we have


BD = 20 + (20 + h) = (40 + h) mimpl


Now in ABC





In ABD




3h = h + 40


h = 20 m



Distance of point A from Cloud C = AC


By phythagoras theorm in triangle ABC


(AC)2 = (AB)2 + (BC)2



Implies AC = 40 m
