Hello!

I'm trying to solve this problem.

Here's the diagram I tried to make.

I have difficulty understanding this math problem.. I've tried to solve the problem using the symmetry of the triangles but I didn't get the right answer, and I can't seem to understand the "concept" of the horizon here.

So I'll be grateful if you give me some hints.
