h=(100+x)/√3

tan60=h/x

h=√3x

equate both

√3x=(100+x/)√3

3x=100+x

2x=100

x=50

.'. h=50√3

h=50*1.732

h=86.6meters

Tan 60 = h/x

x =h

tan 30 = h/100+x

1/ = h/100+x

100 +x = h

100+x =xX

100+x = 3x

100 =2x

x = 50 m

x =h

tan 30 = h/100+x

1/ = h/100+x

100 +x = h

100+x =xX

100+x = 3x

100 =2x

x = 50 m
