h= 12.98 metres

#### Explanation:

The tree is leaning over so, the triangle is no longer right-angled.

The angle at the base of the tree is 82°, and at the observer is 68°, so the angle at the top of the tree is 30°.

We can use the Sine Rule. The height of the tree is opposite the angle of of 68°
