Let OT be te tower.

Therefore, Height of tower = OT = 30 m

Let A and B be the two points on the level ground on the opposite side of tower OT.

Then,

angle of elevation from A = TAO = 45o

and angle of elevation from B = TBO = 60o

Distance between AB = AO + OB = x + y (say)

Now, in right triangle ATO,

tan 45o = OT/AO =30/x

=> x =  30/tan
45o  = 30 m

and in right traingle BTO

tan 60o =  OT/OB =30/y

=> y = = 17.32 m

Hence, the required distance = x + y = 30 + 17.32 = 47.32 m
