B is the base of the tree....

P is the point of the tip of the shadow 500 feet away from the base of the tree

T is the top of the tree

The angle of elevation is angle BPT has measure A.

h is the height of the tree = BT

Note that BP=500

then tan A = BT/BP = h/500

** tan A * 500 = h**

once you find what is the angle A, you plug it into that formula to find the height.

You did not say what it is !!!!

Its a incomplete question. He should mention angle of elevation or depression because not every Right angle triangle has 30°-60°-90° as its angles. Check your question Sadie07/19/20
