A lighthouse that rises 46.0 ft above the surface of the water sits on a rocky cliff that extends 19 ft out into the ocean from the base of the lighthouse. A sailor on the forward deck of a ship sights the top of the lighthouse at an angle of 25.0 degrees above the horizontal. If the sailors eye level is 14 ft above the water, how many ft is the ship from the rocks?
