the sonar of a navy cruiser detects a submarine that is d=4601 ft from the cruiser. the angle between the water level and the submarine is 0=32 degrees. What formula should I use to solve?

    depends on what you want to find.
    The depth of the sub is

    d/4601 = sin32°

    Looks like you need to review your trig ratios
