The angle of elevation of the sun is 53o. Estimate the length of the shadow cast by a tree of height 12m.

Given that: height of tree (AB) =12 m and angle of elevation of the sun is

Let the length of the shadow be x m. so, In ,

Hence, length of shadow will be 9 m.

is a trigonometry question n if it is then how can the angle of elevation be 53o?

It can either  be 30o, 45o or 60o.

check it again n tell me if i am wrong...
