Step 1:  Understand the given question and make a note of the given data.

                NOTE:  Angle of elevation = 60\degree

                              Distance between the boy and the pole = 8 meters

Step 2: Draw a figure by using the given information.


Step 3:  Find the suitable trigonometric ratios to find the unknown length.

              NOTE:  We know the adjacent side and we need to find the opposite side.

                          Hence we need to consider the trigonometric ratio “tan” .

                             \tan \theta = \frac{opposite}{adjacent}

                             \tan 60\degree = \frac{opposite}{8}

                             Opposite = \sqrt{3}*8 meters
