    42... because u are using a right triangle in which perfectly understood that has 90deg. angle ,so when the angle of depression is at 48 deg. at the top of the building therefore 90deg-48deg is equal to 42.because angle of depression and elevation are the same..

    I don't see why the angle would change, the building is vertical and the tree is vertical other words two parallel lines my choice would be 48 degrees, but I have been wrong in the past.|dw:1354903197425:dw|
