 Click here to see ALL problems on Circles Question 149467: There is a park 27 feet wide that is between two buildings whose heights are 123 feet and 111 feet. two teachers, mr. naeher and ms. snyder are standing on top of the shorter building looking at a rare bird percheed on top of the taller building. If dr. naeher is 74 inches tall and ms. snyder is 62 inches tall, who has the samller angle of elevation while looking at the bird?? What are these angles.? THANKS!!! :] Answer by tryin2bhelpful(6)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Ok... if you make Mr. Naeher's height into feet by dividing 74 inches by 12 you'll get... 6ft 2" If you divide Ms. Snyder's height of 62 inches by 12 you get 5'2" Since Mr. Naeher is taller he doesn't have to look up as high as Ms. Snyder does to see the bird... therefore his angle of elevation is smaller than Ms. Snyder. In this problem, the distance between the buildings is irrelevant. Just a little common sense!! ;) Good luck!
