    Answer:

    84 meters.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Set each tower equal to each other and you get (3.1/1.71)=(x/46.5)

    Solve for X

    X≈84.2982

    But we want the nearest meter, so it’s just 84 meters.

    Answer:

    84 meters

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The proportional value, or ratio is as the following:

    \frac{3.1}{1.71} = \frac{x}{46.5}

    Now we can cross multiply in order to solve the equation…

    1.71x=3.1*46.5\\1.71x = 144 \frac{3}{20}\\ x=84.3

    Rounded to the nearest meter, x is 84 meters.
