**drwls**, Monday, June 9, 2008 at 8:43amI have attempted to draw the triangle ABF using your bearing information and the 45 mile distance from A to B (which I call side f). Vertex F is the location of the fire. I get a 30 degree angle at B, 110 at A and 40 at F. The law of sines can be used to obtain the two unknown sides. You are asked for the distance from A to F, which is side b.

b/sin 30 = 45/sin 40

b = (0.5000/0.6428)*45 = 35.00 miles
