When she views the top of the remains of the ancient temple through her angle measuring device, she records an angle of elevation of 37 degrees. She is standing 130 meters from the center of the temples base and her eye is 1.5 meters above the ground. How tall is the temple to the nearest tenth of a meter?

It is believed that Galileo used the “Leaning Tower of Pisa” to conduct his experiments on the laws of gravity. When he dropped objects from the top of the 55 meter tower (length of the tower, not height) they landed 4.8 meters from the base of the tower. To the nearest degree, what is the angle that the tower leans off from the vertical. Leaning Tower 55 meters 4.8 meters
