to your 1rst problem:
All what you've suggested is OK with your problem:
I've attached a diagram to demonstrate what I've calculated.
1. Split the length of 880' int x and (880'-x). Then you have 2 right triangles, with which you get 2 equations:
From the 1rst equation you get: x = h * tan(69.2°). This result plug into the 2nd equation:
Expand the LHS of this equation to:
Solve for h and you'll get:
And now I've to run to catch some €.
