Jambmaths question: 

A hunter 1.6m tall views a bird on top of a tree at an angle of 45o. If the distance between the hunter and the tree is 10.4m. Find the height of the tree.

Jamb Maths Solution: 

$\begin{align}  & \tan {{45}^{\circ }}=\frac{x}{10.4} \\ & 1=\frac{x}{10.4} \\ & x=10.4 \\ & \text{The height of the tree }=(10.4+1.6)m=12.0m \\\end{align}$
