2. Line of sight

3. Angle of elevation

4. Trigonometric ratios

5. Angle of depression

6. Angle of elevation

7. 10m

(Consider a right triangle ABC right angled at B. Take angle C = 30 degree and AC = 20m.Then sin30 = AB/AC =

½ = AB/ 20

AB = 10 m)

8. Angle of depression

9. Angle of elevation

10. 30m

(28.5 + 1.5 = 30)
