Location Identification

The student is told that a certain location in the sky has a certain azimuth value and altitude value at an unknown latitude (azimuth of 180 degrees in the north, 0 degrees in the south, and altitude of 90 minus the latitude in both hemispheres) and is asked to determine what this location is (the intersection of the celestial equator and the observer's meridian).
