The EDM slop distance between two points is 2556.28 ft, and the vertical angle is +2.7580degree. If the elevation of the instrument station is 322.87 ft and the heights of the theodolite/EDM and the target/reflector are all equal to 5.17 ft, compute: Please round to the nearest hundredth (i.e., 0.01) the elevation of the target station the horizontal distance to the target station

Horizontal distance between the instrument station and target station\begin{aligned}=\mathrm{S} \cos \alpha & =2556.28 \cos 2.758^{\circ} \\& =\underline{2553.32 \mathrm{ft} .}\end{aligned}\text { Elevation difference, } \begin{aligned}\Delta \mathrm{H}=\mathrm{S} \sin \alpha & =2556.28 \sin 2.758^{\circ} \\& =123.0 \mathrm{ft} .\end{aligned}Elevation of Target station\begin{array}{l}=\quad \text { Elevation of Inst. Station }+\mathrm{Ht} . \text { of Inst. }+\Delta \mathrm{H}-\text { Target height } \\=\quad 322.87+5.17+123.0-5.17 \\=\quad \underline{445.87 \mathrm{ft} .}\end{array} ...
