**Henry**, Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 11:54amUse the Law of Cosines to solve triangle ABC:

cosC = (a^2 + b^2 - c^2) / 2ab.

cos38=((440)^2+(300)^2-c^2)/2*440*300,

0.7880 = (283600 - c^2) / 264000,

Cross multiply:

-c^2 + 283600 = 208032,

-c^2 = 208032 - 283600,

-c^2 = - 75568,

c^2 = 75568,

c = 275ft. = Distance from A to B.
