Hi - I'm reposting this thread as there was some encoding issues in previous version that I clarified near bottom. Thanks.

Hi - I'm having problems drawing a diagram for the following question. The part I find unclear is "they mark a point A, 120 m along the edge of the waterpark from Brianna's house. I'm wondering if point A is the waterpark. See question. My answer to this question was 196.6 meters, please verify if correct...

Noah and Brianna want to calculate the distance between their houses which are opposite sides of a water park. They mark a point, A, 120 m along the edge of the water park from Briannafs house. The measure NBAÚ as and ‹75BANÚas. Determine the distance between their houses.

If you use encoding Western ISO 8859-1 (you'll find this in the menu of your browser under view/encoding), then everyone can read your symbols.

As it is, I do not understand the part:

"They mark a point, A, 120 m along the edge of the water park from Briannafs house. The measure NBAÚ as and ‹75BANÚas."

Maybe all my questions have this problem. THanks for telling me how to fix it. The original question I posted was:

Noah and Brianna want to calculate the distance between their houses which are opposite sides of a water park. They mark a point, A, 120 m along the edge of the water park from Brianna’s house. The measure <NBA as 75 degrees and <BAN as 70 degrees. Determine the distance between their houses.

draw the figure.

Then, law of sines.

sinNBA/120 =sinBAN/distance

solve for distance.

and by the way in answer to your previous question, the angle between west and northwest is 45 degrees.
