ok so c1 is 3,563 feet long. and c2(the tower) is 87 feet, and hypotenuse is 3,564 long.

If at 3,564 feet, the lenth to the hypotenuse is 87 feet...what is the length of the hypotenuse from the c1 at 2,500 feet?

This is essentially what i'm asking

something like 87/3,564 = ?/2,500 or something like that. I want to figure out what height the ray(or the hypotenuse) would be at a certain point in line c1. I wish i could draw pictures for you guys but I can't

Ok, i've provided a link to illustrate what i'm talking about.
