    Trigonometry

    Angle measurements r taken from two points on directly opposite sides of a tree. How high is the tree??
    tree is in the middle. the angle above the tree is 115
    and the two side angles are 35 and 30.

    the tree is 20.6m tall but how do u find that answer???

    Is this the complete text of the question?

    With the given values the tree can have any height from bonsai to sequoia. In my opinion there is missing a length
