The angle of elevation from a point 50 feet from the base of the tree to the top of the tree is 30 degrees.

Now tan 30 = height of tree/ distance of the point from the base

=> tan 30 = H / 50

=> 1/ sqrt 3 =...

The angle of elevation from a point 50 feet from the base of the tree to the top of the tree is 30 degrees.

Now tan 30 = height of tree/ distance of the point from the base

=> tan 30 = H / 50

=> 1/ sqrt 3 = H / 50

=> H = 50/sqrt 3

=> 28.86 feet

**The height of the tree is 28.86 feet.**
