Dormant hero!!
can some one help me figure the formula to find the height of a tree with this info? the 90* is the only known angle, distance to trunk and distance to top are only known distances
Pythagoran theory=the square of the hypotheneus is equal to the sum of the other sides.
Don't do 39.5 and 39.5, you'll wind up with a triangle that doesn't have a 90* angle (tree would be leaning)and I doubt your ready for the trig.
Plus, I'd have to really think about getting that right. Thus I changed one 39 to 49.
