**let x = horizontal distance from the tree to the mouse**

$\displaystyle \tan(63) = \frac{h}{x}$

$\displaystyle \tan(48) = \frac{h-20}{x}$

**solve the system for h**

And then

y=xsquared tan x is the function positive, negative, or neither?

**you sure you don't mean **__odd, even, or neither__?
