Suppose a tree 50 ft in height cast a shadow of length 60 ft. What is the angle of elevation from the end of the shadow to the top of the tree with respect to the ground?

Ad

Height =50

length = 60

angle=x

tangent(x)=50/60

tangent(x)=0.833

x=39.8 degree

x is the height of tree, y and z are as denoted in picture:

Please rate my answer if it was helpful :)

- cos(22°)=y/215==>y=cos(22°)*215=199.3 ft
- sin(22°)=z/215==>z=sin(22°)*215=80.5 ft
- tan(52°)=(x+z)/y==>x+z=y*tan(52°)=255.1 ft
- x=255.1-z=255.1-80.5=174.6 ft

Please rate my answer if it was helpful :)
