The Bridge to Terabithia

Geometry Level pending

A ship is coming into a harbor on an unusually high tide. The ship has to pass under the harbor bridge but the captain doesn't know if the ship will fit. He uses a theodolite to measure the angle at an unknown distance from the bridge and then re-measures the angle when he is \(300\) m closer. The first angle measured is \(2.3^{\circ}\) from sea level and the second angle is \(3.3{\circ}\) from sea level. If the ships height is \(35\) m out of the water, will it fit under the bridge?
