We can use the following for checking the trigonometric values Trigono Angle and Radian Height and Distance solution image $\begin{array}{l} \text { Let } \angle \mathrm{ACB}=\theta \\ \frac{A C}{A B}=\cot \theta \\ \frac{A C}{A B}=\sqrt{3} \\ \cot 30^{\circ}=\sqrt{3} \\ \therefore \theta=30^{\circ} \end{array}$
