Mountain officials want to build a new ski lift from B to C as shown in the figure below. The distance from A to C is 1480 feet. They measure angle DAC to be 32 degrees and angle DBC to be 18 degrees. What is the distance A from to B? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a foot.

no diagram. Better explain a bit more, the relative positions of A,B,C,D

hyptotenuse AC= 1480
opposite CD= 784.28056
adjacent AD 914.7554
