Height & Distance Mcqs

Q.  From a point P on a level ground, the angle of elevation of the top of a tower is 30°. If the tower is 100 m high, the distance of point P from the foot of the tower is :_________?

a. 149 m
b. 156 m
c. 173 m
d. 200 m


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let AB be the tower. Then, ∠APB = 30° and AB = 100 m, AB/AP = tan 30° = 1/√3 AP = (AB X √3)= 100√3 m. = (100 X 1.73) m = 173 m.
