?????????????? "is lokated" ????????????

????? du that meen yu FOUND it ??????????

make rite triangels with base=410 ft

hite=410ft * tangent(angel)

yu got 2 angels, so gotta add 2 distanses=add 2 tangents

hite1=410*tan(42deg)=410*0.9004040404==369.166 ft

hite2=410*tan(25 deg)=410*0.466307658=191.186
