Practical scenario - VI
(vi). Say, a flag staff of height 'h' is erected upon the top of a building of height 'x'. Say, at a distance 'd', the angles of elevation of the tops of the flag staff and building are θ1 and θ2 respectively. Then the height of the flag staff(h) and height of the building(x) are given by
- Example: From a point 'P' on the ground the angle of elevation of a top of a 15 m tall building is 30°. A flag is hoisted at the top of the building and the angle of elevation of the top of the flag staff from P is 60°. Find the lenght of the flag staff and the distance of the building from the point P.
