1. ### Geometry problem

Thanks for making an effort! It's always rewarding even if we don't solve exactly everything :)
2. ### Geometry problem

Use the green triangle how? I don't know the short side or the hypothenus of it. I can't know how to aim the angle to the zero point 'inside' the mountain...
3. ### Geometry problem

I would very much like you to explain this in detail (with drawings). Else I'm not quite sure I understand your method :P
4. ### Geometry problem

No, it's not that easy unfortunatel. I don't know the distance to the zero point. In fact, I don't know any distances at all. Only the height of the two mountains. And the point was to use angles along with the mountain heights to solve the problem...
5. ### Geometry problem

The point of the problem is this: Let's say you outside taking a hike somewhere. You can see the summit of to mountains (which you know the height of), and you're wondering how high above sea-level you are right now. The only tools you have is some kind of instrument making you able to measure...
6. ### Geometry problem

I'm sorry. You're confusing me...
7. ### Geometry problem

I'm leaning towards there not being a solution. However, if you perform two measurements, with the distance between measuring points known, the angles could tell you the distance to either mountain. Then it would be possible!
8. ### Geometry problem

I can measure the angle between top A and B, but that's about it. I don't know any other length in that triangle. So I would say no. But I'm not sure...
9. ### Geometry problem

Homework Statement I want to know if the problem needs another variable, or if it is possible to solve as it is. Homework Equations See figure in image included: You are a point x, some height h above zero-level. The two mountains have known height 500m and 400m. But you don't know how far...
