Plane II

A plane flew 50 km on a bearing 63degrees20 and the flew on a bearing 153degrees20 for 140km. Find the distance between the starting point and the ending point

Correct result:

x =  148.661 km

Solution:

u=153+20/60(63+20/60)=90 x=502+1402=10 221=148.661 kmu=153+20/60-(63+20/60)=90 \ \\ x=\sqrt{ 50^2+140^2 }=10 \ \sqrt{ 221 }=148.661 \ \text{km}
