Two landmarks are on the opposite sides of a tower. They measure the angles of elevation from the landmarks to the top of the tower as 30° and 45°. If the height of the tower is 200 meters, find the distance between the landmarks
The calculator adjusts some input to <1 and >0. We just times the answer by 1000 to turn .5464101615137754 to 546.4101615137754.
So the distance between the two landmarks is:
That is an exact answer folks, without any trigonometry!
