    The base of a ladder is 10 ft away from a vertical building.

    The top of the ladder rests at the top of the building.

    The angle of elevation of the ladder from the bottom of the ladder

    to the top of the building is 70 degrees. 

    h = 10 tan 70 = 27.4747742 = 27.47 (rounded to the second decimal place). 

    The height of the building:    

    C) 27.47 ft

    tan(70 degees) = h / 10

    h = 10(tan(70)) = 27.47 ft (C)
