A climber who needs to estimate the height of a cliff stands at a point on the ground L = 60 feet from the base of the cliff and estimates that the angle F from the ground to a line extending from the climber's feet to the top of the cliff is 50°. Assuming that the cliff is perpendicular to the ground, find the approximate height of the cliff. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
