    A wind tower at the top of a hill casts a shadow 30m long along the side of the hill. An observer at the farthest edge of the shadow from the tower estimates the angle of elevation to the top of the tower to be 34degrees. If the slope of the hill is 13degrees from the horizontal, how high is the tower of the nearest metre?
