\\\text { Let height of pedestral be } \mathrm{h} \ \mathrm{m} \\ $In triangle ABD $ \\ \tan 45^{\circ} = \frac{BD}{AB} \\ 1 = \frac{h}{AB} \Rightarrow AB = h \\ \text {In triangle ABC } \\ \tan 60^{\circ}=\frac{BC}{AB} \\ \sqrt{3} =\frac{h+1.6}{h} \\ (\sqrt{3}-1) \mathrm{h}=1.6 \\ h = \frac{1.6}{\sqrt{3}-1}
