# Pre calc

A small plane takes off from island A and flies in a straight line for 12 kilometers. At the same time, a sailor sitting in a sailboat who is 5 miles from the island measures the angled by from island A to the sailboat and the plane is 37 degrees. How far is the plane from island B? Please draw and label the situation if possible.Thanks!
