Q3

Two fire towers in a park are 3.4 km apart. When the park rangers on duty spot a fire, they can locate the fire by measuring the angle between the fire and the other tower. Fire is located 53^o from one tower and 65^o from the other tower.

a) Which tower is closer to the fire?

b) Determine the distance from the closest tower to the fire.

Q7

As Chloe and Ivan canoe across a lake, they notice a campsite ahead at an angle of 22^o to the left of their direction of paddling. After continuing to paddle in the same direction for 800 m, the campsite is behind them at an angle of 110^o to their direction of paddling. How far away is the campsite at the second sighting?
