AB = 50 m, \angle XAY = 43^o, \angle XAB = 60^o, \angle ABX = 82^o. Q10

Tess was flying from Toronto to Hamilton at night. She noticed that her heading indicator was malfunctioning and decided to check her position.

She called Hamilton Tower and St. Catharines Radio. knowing that the stations were 50 km apart.

Hamilton reported that the position of her plane formed an angle of 65^o with the line joining the two stations. St. Catharines reported that her position made an angle of 48^o .

How far was the plane from Hamilton. to the nearest kilometre?

Q11

Scuba divers count fin strokes to estimate the distance they have travelled under water. Felipe uses this method and a compass to swim 300 m north from the dive boat. He then turns right to 120^o and swim 400 m . How far from the boat is he, to the nearest metre? In what direction must Felipe swim to return to the boat?

Q12

While standing exactly halfway between two tall trees. Nikki spots a blue jay at the top of one tree and a cardinal at the top of the other, as shown

From Nikki is pom‘t of view, the angles of elevation to the blue jay and to the cardinal are 60° and 50", respectively. The trees are 40 m apart. a) If Nikki is 1.5 m tall, find the height of each tree.

b) How far apart are the two birds, to the nearest tenth of a metre?
