**Finding the Lean of the Leaning Tower of Pisa** The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa was originally 184.5 feet high.* At a distance of 123 feet from the base of the tower, the angle

of elevation to the top of the tower is found to be 60°. Find $\angle $RPQ indicated in the figure. Also, find the perpendicular distance from R to PQ.

Angle $\angle RPQ=84.{74}^{\circ}.$

The perpendicular distance from R to PQ is $183.72$ feet long.

Height of Leaning tower of Pisa is 184.5m high.

The angle of elevation is found to be ${60}^{\circ}$at distance of 123 feet from the base of the tower.

We have to find $\angle RPQ$ and the perpendicular distance from R to PQ.
