How tall is each building.Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Two building are 300ft apart. from the top of the shorter building the angle of elevation of the top of the taller building is 23 degree, and the angle of depression of the base of the taller building is 36. How tall is each building. Angle of elevation of taller building from top of small building = 23 deg . The extra height of the taller building the distance between the two buildings form a right triange with the distance of the top of the buildings tan 23 = height * 300 300 tan 23 = height 300*0.4245 = height 127.35 = height .. similarly with angle of depression height = tan 36 * 300 height = 0.7265*300 = 217.95 is the height of the smaller building height of the taller building = 217.95 + 127.35 =345.30
