Width of a Sand Pile A person standing on top of a 15-foot high sand pile wishes to estimate the width of the pile. He visually locates two rocks on the ground below at the base of the sand pile. The rocks are on opposite sides of the sand pile, and he and the two rocks are in the same vertical plane. If the angles of depression from the top of the sand pile to each of the rocks are

To determine

**To find:**

How far apart are the rocks if the angle of depression from the top of the sand pile to each of the rocks are

**Given information:**

A person standing on top of a 15-foot high sand pile wishes to estimate the width of the pile. He visually locates two rocks on the ground below at the base of the sand pile. The rocks are on the opposite sides of the sand pile, and he and the two rocks are in the same vertical plane.

**Concept Used:**

Pythagorean Theorem:

**Sketch:**

**Calculation:**

Let’s assume that the distances of the rocks from the pile are,
