For each building, you are given the angle of the line of sight up to the top of the building, and the distance to the building. Calculate the height of each building. Building 2 Angle 45ｺ Distance 10 meters Answer by Edwin McCravy(9719)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` You have collected data on several buildings. For each building, you are given the angle of the line of sight up to the top of the building, and the distance to the building. Calculate the height of each building. Building 2 Angle 45ｺ Distance 10 meters _______ ､|Bldg 2| ､ | | ､ |h | ､ | | ､ 45ｰ |Bldg 2| ｯｯｯｯ10mｯｯ ｯｯｯｯｯｯ In this case is obvious the height of the building is ALSO 10 meters. But to show it worked out, let h represent the height of the building. Then adjacent tan45ｰ = 覧覧覧覧覧覧 hypotenuse 10 tan45ｰ = 覧覧 h 10 1 = 覧覧 h Multiply both sides by h and you get h = 10 meters Edwin```
