A tower 400 ft tall is near a shorter building, and the ground between them is horizontal. A person at the base of the tower measures a 65 degree angle of elevatoin to the top of the building. A person at the top of the tower measures a 15 degree angle of depression to the top of the building.

a) draw a diagram depicting this situation

b)find the height of the building. Calculate the solution to the nearest tenth foot.

Step 1

**Part (a):**

From the information, diagram is shown,

Step 2

**Part (b):**

To find: The height of building.

Consider, AD = y.

From the angle of depression, we found the remaining angle,

Step 3

From the triang...
