A pyramid has been measured to be 580 feet and 12 inches but due to loss of its topmost stones, it is now shorter. Find the current height of the pyramid. GIVEN DATA: Two angles of elevation were taken: The first is 46.27 degrees and the second is 40.3 degrees. The first angle of elevation is 100 feet from the base of the pyramid and the second angle of elevation is 200 feet from the base of the pyramid.

You need a couple of minor assumptions. You can then use the same method that I gave you some time ago for a similar problem.
