I am building a sloped table and I need to determine the height of one side. Here are my dimensions. The tall side has two legs at a height of $55$ inches, the top where the tabletop attaches will be cut at a $60^\circ$ angle. The Distance from where the tall legs attach to the next set of legs is $34$ inches. The next set of legs will be also cut at a $60^\circ$ angle, however I am not sure how to calculate what height the second set of legs should be. I have added a image to explain. Hopefully some one can help.
