A tree breaks due to storm and the broken part bends, so that the top of the tree touches the ground making an angle of 30 degree with the ground. The distance between the foot of the tree to the point where the top touches the ground is 8m find he height of the tree.

Let AC was the original tree. Due to storm, it was broken into two parts. The broken part  is making 30° with the ground.

In ,

Height of tree = + BC

Hence, the height of the tree is.
