no... CAB is 21 degrees

and you're assuming that Angle CBA is a right angle

|dw:1366585349856:dw| \[\frac{35}{\sin(21)} = \frac{b}{\sin(101)} \rightarrow (35)\sin(101)=b \sin(21) \rightarrow \frac{(35)\sin(101)}{\sin(21)}\] which gives me 95.87.

I have one problem with this. How do you know that CB is perpendicular to the horizontal-ish line A? If you don't know that, you can't assume the 90 degrees or the 11 degrees via parallel lines+transversal.

I know that the pole is perpendicular because it does not say otherwise, and thus I drew the line parallel to the horizontal and created the 90.

Since that is not what I did, I certainly would not use similar logic.
