Figure 2-3 illustrates the conditions of this problem. Figure 2-3 Drawing for Example 3. 4l Example 4: A ladder must reach the top of a building. The base of the ladder will be 25' from the base of the building. The angle of elevation from the base of the ladder to the top of the building is 64°. Find the height of the building (h) and the length of the ladder (m). Figure 2-4 illustrates the conditions of this problem.
