**Steve**, Monday, June 2, 2014 at 6:39amHmmm. I don't see an obvious application of the law of sines here. However, if we consider the distance directly to the plane, and call the first one x and the second one y, then

1000/x = sin52°

1000/y = sin16°

Then we want the distance z given by the law of cosines,

z^2 = x^2+y^2-2xy cos(52-16)°

Or,

z/sin36° = x/sin16° = y/sin128°
