A Satellite flying at height h is watching the top of the two tallest mountains in Uttarakhand and Karnataka ,them being Nanda Devi(height 7,816m) and Mullayanagiri (height 1,930 m). The angles of depression from the satellite, to the top of Nanda Devi and Mullayanagiri are 30° and 60° respectively. If the distance between the peaks of two mountains is 1937 km , and the satellite is vertically above the midpoint of the distance between the two mountains.
