Answer:

begin mathsize 12px style Let space CB space be space the space pole space and space point space straight D space divides space it space such space that space BD space colon space DC space equals space 1 space colon space 9 space space
Given space that space AB space equals space 15 space straight m space space
Let space the space the space two space parts space subtend space equal space angles space at space point space straight A space such space that space
angle CAD space equals space angle BAD space equals space straight theta space space
space from space increment DAB
tanθ equals BD over 15 rightwards arrow circle enclose 1
from space increment CAB
tan 2 straight theta equals CB over 15 rightwards arrow circle enclose 2
on space taking space the space ratio space fraction numerator circle enclose 1 over denominator circle enclose 2 end fraction space we space get
fraction numerator tanθ over denominator tan 2 straight theta end fraction equals BD over CB equals 1 over 10 rightwards arrow circle enclose 3
rightwards double arrow 10 tanθ equals fraction numerator 2 tanθ over denominator 1 minus tan squared straight theta end fraction
rightwards double arrow tan squared straight theta equals 8 over 10 equals 4 over 5
rightwards double arrow tanθ equals fraction numerator 2 over denominator square root of 5 end fraction
from space circle enclose 3 space we space have
space tan 2 straight theta equals 10 tanθ equals fraction numerator 20 over denominator square root of 5 end fraction
from space circle enclose 2
we space have
space tan 2 straight theta equals CB over 15
rightwards double arrow CB equals 15 cross times fraction numerator 20 over denominator square root of 5 end fraction equals 60 square root of 5 straight m
