- A man sitting at a height of 20m on a tall tree on a small island in the middle of a river observes 2 poles directly opposite to each other on the 2 banks of the river and in line with a foot of tree. If the angles of depression of the feet the pole from a point at which the man is sitting on the tree on either side of the river are 60 degrees and 30 degrees respectively. Find the width of the river.
