    It is an extension 1 question, with 3D trig.

    I'll try and solve it when I get back

    David walks along a straight road. At one point he notices a tower on a bearing of 053° with an angle of elevation of 21°. After walking 230 m, the tower is on a bearing of 342°, with an angle of elevation of 26°. Find the height of the tower correct to the nearest metre.

    I'm not OP, but I didn't really know where to start, I drew a shit diagram though.

    Are you referring to the old version of the book or the new version?

    Why doesn't it work if I use the Sine Rule to find your x and y above and then substitute those into the tan ratio?
