Frustrating Hmwk DUE
Simi is standing 200 m due east of Raoul. From Raoul, the angle of elevation from the ground to the top of a building due north of Raoul is 12 degrees. From Simi, the angle of elevation from the ground to the top of the building is 9 degrees. Let the height of the building be h m. Express the following in terms of h.
(i) the distance from Raoul to the foot of the building
(ii) the distance from Simi to the foot of the building
I'v been trying to figure this out all day. (Angry) Could someone please give me a hint on what I should do???
lol yes there were two more parts:
b) Use your answers above and Pythagoras' theorem to find the height of the building.
c) On what bearing is the building from Simi?
thanx for your solutions!
