A tall tower (Posted on 2014-06-18) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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?

Is your 288.97 a typo for 289.97?


Also, in  a couple of spots you have 50^, rather than 50^2.
