angle of elevation of the top of the hill at the foot of tower is 60 degrees and the angle of elevation of tower from the foot of the hill is 30 degrees. if tower is 50m high find the height of hill

Let the height of the hill, CD be h m.

Height of the tower, AB = 50 m

In ΔBCD,

In ΔABC,

Comparing (i) and (ii), we get

Thus, the height of the hill is 150 m.
