A tall tower is constructed on the side of a hill with uniform incline. Two guy wires are attached to the top of the tower and to points on the ground 50.0 feet from the tower - one directly up-slope and one directly down-slope. If the wires are 284.7 feet and 303.5 feet respectively, what is the angle of incline of the hill and how high is the tower?
Did you start with integer values for the angle of incline and the height of the tower and calculate the guy wire lengths?
