# Homework Help: physics

You are camping with two friends, Joe and Karl. Since all three of you like your privacy, you don't pitch your tents close together. Joe's tent is 27.0 m from yours, in the direction 19.0 degrees north of east. Karl's tent is 30.5 m from yours, in the direction 34.5 degrees south of east.

What is the distance between Karl's tent and Joe's tent?

draw the figure, label the angles in the triangle, and use the law of cosines.

Also, I got 28.47 m but that was incorrect.
