Question 1 Report
At a point 500m from the base of a water tank the angle of elevation of the top of the tank is 45o. Find the height of the tank,
We can use the trigonometric ratio tangent to solve this problem. Let h be the height of the tank. Then, we have: tan(45°) = h/500 Since tan(45°) = 1, we can simplify to: h/500 = 1 h = 500 Therefore, the height of the tank is 500 meters. Note that the answer is not in the options provided.
