The pond

We can see the pond at an angle of 65°37'. Its endpoints are 155 m and 177 m away from the observer. What is the width of the pond?

Correct answer:

c =  180.8356 m

Step-by-step explanation:

a=155 m b=177 m  A=65+6037=6065 60+6037=603900+6037=603900+37=60393765.6167   c=a2+b22 a b cosA=a2+b22 a b cos65.616666666667° =1552+17722 155 177 cos65.616666666667° =1552+17722 155 177 0.41284=180.836=180.8356 m
