Answer:

the height of the building is 86.6m

Step-by-step explanation:

In the right triangle, the height which we are looking for is the opposite side, since it is opposite to the angle 60°

Now we need to find the height of the building

tanθ = Opposite side/Adjacent side

tan 60° = Opp side/Adj side

1.7321 = Opp side/50

1.7321 x 50 = Opp side

Opp side = 50 x 1.7321

Opp side = 86.6 m

Therefore, the height of the building is 86.6m.
