From a point 300ft from a building, the angle of elevation to the base of an antenna on the roof is 32.7 degrees. The angle of elevation to the top of the antenna is 42.3 degrees. What is the height of the antenna alone?
Would this be a situation for csc sec and cot?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you have the adjacent and need to find the opposite...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great so \[\tan(32.7) = \frac{x}{300}\] solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1repeat the process to the top of the antenna dw:1433277446569:dw this time find y. The height of the antenna is y  x hope it helps...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan(32.7) = .64 * 300 for x? so 192.6 for the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great... so repeat the process... to find y... then you can find the height of the antenna alone hope it makes sense
