• from top of tower height 50cm angle of depression of top and bottom of pole is 30 and 45 degree find the distance between the tower and the pole and find height of pole
• if the length of the shadow of a vertical column increases by 10 root 3m when the altitude of the sun becomes 45 and 60 degree.from the height of the column and the length of the shadow when the sun's altitude was 60 degree
• i guess 8 root 3 divided by root3-1 multiplied by root 3+1 on both numerator and denominatoris not equal to 4(3+root3)
• how would u do that if building one was taller than b
