Answer:44.81mStep-by-step explanation:The set up is right angled

Given the following

Angle of elevation = 35°

Distance from base of building = 64m = adjacent

Height of the building = opposite

Using the SOH CAH TOA identity

Tan theta = opp/adj

tan 35 = x/64

x = 64tan35

x = 64(0.7002)

x = 44.81m

hence the height of the building is 44.81m
