Hidden Tower

In class today, our problem was to decide if we wanted a disguised cell phone tower instead of a regular one and then explain and justify our choice to the city council.  

We were given the angle of depression for both types of towers.  

We used the angles and the tangent formula to find the radius of the coverage circle for each type of tower.   The concealed tower would have a cover radius of 3579.53 feet and the unconcealed tower’s coverage radius would be 14,323.58 feet.  

Although it might improve the look of the tower and be less ugly, we are urging the city council to approve the regular tower for better coverage.
