# The angle of elevation of the top of a tree 39m away from a point on the ground ...

### Question

The angle of elevation of the top of a tree 39m away from a point on the ground is 30o. Find the height of the tree.

### Options

A) 39√3m

B) 13√3m

C) 13/$$\sqrt{3}$$m

D) 13/3$$\sqrt{3}$$m

E) $$\sqrt{3}$$/13m

### Explanation:

x/25 = tan 30o
x = 39 x 1/√3 = 13√3m

## Dicussion (1)

• x/25 = tan 30o
x = 39 x 1/√3 = 13√3m
