**3. A contractor plans to install two slides for the children to play in a park. For the children below the age of 5 years, she prefers to have a slide whose top is at a height of 1.5 m and is inclined at an angle of **** to the ground, whereas for elder children, she wants to have a steep slide at a height of 3 m and inclined at an angle of **** to the ground. What should be the length of the slide in each case?**

**Ans. **In right triangle ABC,

AC = 3 m

In right triangle PQR,

PR = m

Hence, the lengths of the slides are 3 m and m respectively.

**6. A 1.5 m tall boy is standing at some distance from a 30 m tall building. The angle of elevation from his eyes to the top of the building increases from **** to **** as he walks towards the building. Find the distance he walked towards the building.**

**Ans. **AB = 30 m and PR = 1.5 m

AC = AB – BC

= AB – PR

= 30 – 1.5

= 28.5 m

In right triangle ACQ,

QC = m

In right triangle ACP,

PQ =

PQ = = m

Hence, the walked towards the building is m.

**7. From a point on the ground, the angles of elevation of the bottom and the top of a transmission tower fixed at the top of a 20 m high building are **** and **** respectively. Find the height of the tower.**

**Ans. **Let the height of the tower be m. Then, in right triangle CBP,

……….(i)

In right triangle ABP,

BP = 20 m

Putting this value in eq. (i), we get,

=

m

The height of the tower is m.

**8. A statue, 1.6 m tall, stands on the top of a postal. From a point on the ground, the angle of elevation of the top of the statue is **** and from the same point the angle of elevation of the top of the pedestal is **** Find the height of the pedestal.**

**Ans. **Let the height of the pedestal be m.

BC = m

In right triangle ACP,

……….(i)

In right triangle BCP,

PC =

[From eq. (i)]

m

Hence, the height of the pedestal is m.

**9. The angle of elevation of the top of a building from the foot of the tower is **** and the angle of elevation of the top of the tower from the foot of the building is **** If the tower is 50 m high, find the height of the building.**

**Ans. **Let the height of the building be m.

BQ = m……….(i)

In right triangle ABQ,

BQ = m……….(ii)

From eq. (i) and (ii),

m

**10. Two poles of equal heights are standing opposite each other on either side of the road, which is 80 m wide. From a point between them on the road, the angles of elevation of the top of the poles are **** and **** respectively. Find the height of the poles and the distances of the point from the poles.**

**Ans. **In right triangle PRQ,

H = m……….(i)

In right triangle ABR,

[From eq. (i)]

m

H = = m

Also, BR = = 80 – 20 = 60 m

Hence the heights of the poles are m each and the distances of the point from poles are 20 m and 60 m respectively.

**11. A TV tower stands vertically on a bank of a canal. From a point on the other bank directly opposite the tower, the angle of elevation of the top of the tower is **** From another point 20 m away from this point on the line joining this point to the foot of the tower, the angle of elevation of the top of the tower is **** (see figure). Find the height of the tower and the width of the canal. **

**Ans. **In right triangle ABC,

AB = m……….(i)

In right triangle ABD,

AB = m……….(ii)

From eq. (i) and (ii),

=

3BC = BC + 20

BC = 10 m

From eq. (i), AB = m

Hence height of the tower is m and the width of the canal is 10 m.

**12. From the top of a 7 m high building, the angle of elevation of the top of a cable tower is **** and the angle of depression of its foot is **** Determine the height of the tower.**

**Ans. **In right triangle ABD,

BD = 7 m

AE = 7 m

In right triangle AEC,

CE = m

CD = CE + ED

= CE + AB

= = m

Hence height of the tower is m.

**13. As observed from the top of a 75 m high lighthouse from the sea-level, the angles of depression of two ships are **** and **** If one ship is exactly behind the other on the same side of the lighthouse, find the distance between two ships.**

**Ans. **In right triangle ABQ,

BQ = 75 m……….(i)

In right triangle ABP,

[From eq. (i)]

75 + QP =

QP = m

Hence the distance between the two ships is m.

**14. A 1.2 m tall girl spots a balloon moving with the wind in a horizontal line at a height of 88.2 m from the ground. The angle of elevation of the balloon from the eyes of the girl at any distant is **** After some time, the angle of elevation reduces to **** (see figure). Find the distance travelled by the balloon during the interval. **

**Ans. **In right triangle ABC,

BC = m

In right triangle PQC,

= 176.4

BQ = =

= = = m

Hence the distance travelled by the balloon during the interval is m.

**15. A straight highway leads to the foot of a tower. A man standing at the top of the tower observes a car at an angle of depression of ****, which is approaching the foot of the tower with a uniform speed. Six seconds later, the angle of depression of the car is found to be **** Find the time taken by the car to reach the foot of the tower from this point.**

**Ans. **In right triangle ABP,

BP = AB ……….(i)

In right triangle ABQ,

BQ = ……….(ii)

PQ = BP – BQ

PQ = AB

= = = 2BQ [From eq. (ii)]

BQ = PQ

Time taken by the car to travel a distance PQ = 6 seconds.

Time taken by the car to travel a distance BQ, i.e. PQ = x 6 = 3 seconds.

Hence, the further time taken by the car to reach the foot of the tower is 3 seconds.

**16. The angles of elevation of the top of a tower from two points at a distance of 4 m and 9 m from the base of the tower and in the same straight line with it are complementary. Prove that the height of the tower is 6 m.**

**Ans. **Let APB =

Then, AQB =

[APB and AQB are complementary]

In right triangle ABP,

……….(i)

In right triangle ABQ,

=

……….(ii)

Multiplying eq. (i) and eq. (ii),

AB^{2} = 36

AB = 6 m

Hence, the height of the tower is 6 m.

Proved.
