Case Study – 1
Qutub Minar, located in South Delhi, India, was built in the year 1193. It is 72 m high tower. Working on a school project, Charu and Daljeet visited the monument. They used trigonometry to find their distance from the tower. Observe the picture given below. Points C and D represent their positions on the ground in line with the base of tower, the angles of elevation of top of the tower (Point A) are 60° and 45° from points C and D respectively.
(1) Based on above information, draw a well-labelled diagram.
(2) Find the distances CD, BC and BD. VIEW SOLUTION
