Answer:ok

Step-by-step explanation:so tan 30 = height divided by 20

tan 30= 1

so height is equal to 20 ×1 = 20 meter

concept is that tan theta equals p divided by b

here p becomes height of the tower as it is vertical

and base or b becomes the 20 m distance

Step-by-step explanation:In this we will use tan formula which is perpendicular upon base……….

base is distance between foot of tower…..

and perpendicular is height of the tower ….

now using tan formula….

tan30°=p / 20

1=p/20

cross multiplying……

20=p

HENCE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER IS 20 cm…

Hope it help……
