Draw and label a diagram!

M is the location of the man

F is the point on the pole opposite the man

T is the top of the ;pole +

B is the bottom of the pole

tan 16° = TF / MF → MF tan 16° = TF

tan 12° = B F / MF → ME tan 12° = BF

MF tan 16° + MF tan 12° = TF + FB

MF tan 16° + MF tan 12° = 45

Can you solve for MF and answer?
