    Trigenometry Question

    I was having trouble with this question so if you know the answer please post it and tell me how you solved it:
    You are looking up at the top of a building at 30 degrees. If the building is 20 m tall, how far are you from the building? Assume that you are 1.70 m tall.

    Thanks

    Since you are 1.7m tall, the building is 18.3 taller than you are.
    Let x = the distance you are from the building

    tan(30) = 18.3 / x

    x tan(30) = 18.3

    x = 18.3 / tan(30)

    I get 31.6965 and change
    THE PITSBURGH STEELERS WERE THE BEST TEAM IN THE AFC BUT THE DENVER BRONCOS HAVE THE BEST LEFT HANDED QUARTERBACK.
