Project #19242 - Geometry about the Bent Pyramid. Tricky

The third largest pyramid in Egypt called Bent pyramid because its
shifted a bit up. The page length was 188, 6 m and height 101,1 m
bottom tilting 55 degrees before changing tilt to 43 degrees.How high
is the change of Inclination?

I know the length of the
base, and the total height. I also know the angles I labeled in the
figure. You want to find out the height at which the angle changes

Xtra information to the exercise taken from google :The Bent Pyramid located at Dahshur was the second pyramid built by
>pharaoh Sneferu. Mysteriously, the Egyptian pyramid rises from the
>desert at an angle of 55 degrees and then suddenly changes to a more
>gradual angle of 43 degrees. One theory holds that due to the
>steepness of the original angle the weight to be added above the
inner
>chambers and passageways became too large, forcing the builders to
>adopt a shallower angle. The base of the pyramid is 188.6 meters (619
>ft) and the height 101.1 meters (332 ft).
