A geologist at point A measures the distance and angle of elevation to two
columns of the Glen Rose formation in Texas. If the distance AS = 790ft and the distance AN = 883ft, compute the difference in the heights of the two columns to the nearest foot.
[A] 1 ft [B] 970 ft [C] 260 ft [D] 118 ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great! so you can use my equation to find the length of SB sin(49) = length of SB/length of AS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great! now do the same thing for the second equation: sin(54) = length of NC/length of AN
