## 10th Samacheer Kalvi Math Solution for Exercise 7.2 part 4

Question 10 :

A student sitting in a classroom sees a picture on the black board at a height of 1.5 m from the horizontal level of sight. The angle of elevation of the picture is 30°. As the picture is not clear to him, he moves straight towards the black board and sees the picture at an angle of elevation of 45°. Find the distance moved by the student.

Solution :

Distance moved by the student  =  BC

In triangle ABD :

∠ABD  =  30°

tan θ = opposite side/Adjacent side

tan 30°  =  AD/BD

1/√3  =  1.5/BD

BD  =  1.5 x √3 ==> 1.5 √3

In triangle ACD :

∠ACD  =  45°

tan θ = opposite side/Adjacent side

tan 45°  =  AD/CD

1  =  1.5/CD

CD  =  1.5

BC  =  BD - CD

BC  =  1.5 √3 - 1.5

=  1.5 (√3 - 1) = 1.5(1.732 - 1)

=  1.5 (0.732) ==> 1.098 m

Hence the distance moved by the student is 1.098 m.

Question 11 :

A boy is standing at some distance from a 30 m tall building and his eye level from the ground is 1.5 m. The angle of elevation from his eyes to the top of the building increases from 30° to 60° as he walks towards the building. Find the distance he walked towards the building.

Solution :

From the given information, we can draw a rough diagram

AD  =  28.5 m

In triangle ABD

∠ABD  =  30°

tan θ = opposite side/Adjacent side

tan 30° = AD/BD

1/√3  =  28.5/BD ==> BD  = 28.5 √3 --(1)

In triangle ACD

∠ABD  =  60°

tan θ = opposite side/Adjacent side

tan 60° = AD/CD

3  =  28.5/CD ==> CD  = 28.5/

Multiplying by 3 on both numerator and denominator, we get

CD  =  28.5/3 ==> 28.53/3  ==> 9.53  -->(2)

the distance he walked towards the building =  BD - CD

=  28.5 √3  -  9.53 ==> 193 m

Question 12 :

From the top of a lighthouse of height 200 feet, the lighthouse keeper observes a Yacht and a Barge along the same line of sight .The angles of depression for the Yacht and the Barge are 45° and 30°  respectively. For safety purposes the two sea vessels should be at least 300 feet apart. If they are less than 300 feet , the keeper has to sound the alarm. Does the keeper have to sound the alarm ?

Solution :

From the above picture, we have to find the value of CD.

In triangle ABC

∠ACB  =  45°

sin θ = opposite side/Hypotenuse side

sin 45°  =  AB/BC

1/2  =  200/BC

BC  =  200 2

In triangle ABD

sin 30°  =  AB /BD

1/2  =  200/BD

BD = 200 x 2 ==> 400

CD = BD - BC ==> 400 - 200 2 ==> 200(2 - 2)

=  200 (2 - 1.414)

=  200(0.586) ==> 117.2 m

From this we come to know that the distance between  Yacht and a Barge is less than 300 m. Hence the keeper has to sound the alarm.
