at a point A 20 metres above the level of water in a lake the angle of elevation of a cloud is 30 degree. the angle of depression of the reflection of the cloud in the lake at A is 60 degree. find the distnace of cloud from A.

I too need answer
  • -13
the height of the cloud is 40 m and the distance is a bit confusing
  • -7
The distance between A and Cloud is 40m
  • -4
Sure 40 know? Yay!

tan30∘=ECAD=13
tan⁡ 30∘ = ECAD = 13(ED=h)(ED=h) => AD==3
AD =  h 3 ---- (1) tan60∘=FDAD
tan ⁡60∘ = FDAD = 3√3 FD=h+40FD = h + 40 =h+403√AD = h + 403 ---- (2) h3
h+403√h3 = h + 403 3h=h+403h = h + 40 2h=40=>h=20m2h = 40 => h = 20 m EC=h+20=20+20EC = h + 20 = 20+20 =40m= 40 m
40m
