# Thread: Question involving angle of elevation

1. ## Question involving angle of elevation

Hi, I really do not understand this question, if you could please solve and explain it, I would greatly appreciate it!

Here it is:

A 75 ft tower has an angle of elevation of 20 degrees. If the horizontal distance is 300 ft, how much higher in the air is the balloon?

Thank you so much!

3. Distance to the Tower is about 206 feet.
If the distance were 300 feet your angle of elevation would change.
