# Find The Distance Between Two Poles :

Two poles are 10 m and 20 m high. The line joining their tops makes an angle of 15^{o} with the horizontal. The distance between the poles is approximately equal to

- 36.3 m
- 37.3 m
- 38.3 m
- 39.3 m

**Answer: (2) 37.2 m **

**Explanation:- **In the Figure-

tan 15 degree = 10/X

0.268 = 10/X

X = 10/0.268

X = 37.3 m

Then, the distance between the poles is 37.3 m.

Hence, the answer is (2) 37.3 m.
