**drwls**, Friday, January 7, 2011 at 2:25pmDraw a figure with a right angle triangle connecting Jessie, his bike and the base of the cliff.

38 degrees = arcsin 150/X,

where X is the distance you seek. (It is the hypotenuse of that triangle).

Solve that equation for X

sin38 = 150/X is one way to do it.

.6157 = 150/x

150/.6157 = 243.6
