you could do a model showing the angle of elevation and angle of depression of a building

yes

tan40=x/100 100tan(40)=83.9m

The question is not quite clear but if the angle of elevation is 26 degrees at a distance of 165 feet away from the building then its height is 80.47587711 feet. 165*tan(26) = 80.47587711 feet

The language of the question is too ambiguous. In mathematics, we use precise language to avoid this problem. point a is 40 metres from the base of building B the angle of elevation to the top of building C is 51 degree and to the top of the flagpole D on top of building is 56 dedree
