Two pillars are standing on either side of a 80 m wide road. Height of one pillar is 20 m more than the height of the other pillar. From a point on the road between the pillars, the angle of elevation of the higher pillar is 60°, whereas that of the other pillar is 30°. Find the position of the point between the pillars and the height of each pillar. (Use √3 = 1-73)

Let AB and PQ be the two pillars of height h m and (h + 20) m.

Let R be any point on the road.

Length of shorter pillar = 29.56 m

Length of bigger pillar = 49.56 m

Distance of shorter pillar from point R = 51.35 m

Distance of bigger pillar from point R = 28.65 m
