To estimate the height of a mountain above a level plain,

the angle of elevation to the top of the mountain is measured to be 32°.

One thousand feel closer to the mountain, the angle of elevation is 35^#176;.

Estimate the height of the mountain. Code:

A *
| * *
| * *
h | * *
| * *
| 35° * 32° *
*-----------*-----------*
B - - x - - C - 1000 - D

The height of the mountain is: $\displaystyle H = AB$

$\displaystyle \angle ADB = 32^o,\;\angle ACB = 35^o$

$\displaystyle CD = 1000$

Let $\displaystyle x = BC$

Now follow the steps outlined by skeeter . . .
