A football player is attempting a field goal. The angle formed by the player's position on the field and the line of sight to each upright is 33o. If the distances to the uprights are 7.5 m and 10.0 m, calculate the width of the uprights.

  1. looks like cosine law ...
    let the width between the uprights be x m

    x^2= 7.5^2 + 10.0^2 - 2(10)(7.5)cos 33°
    = .....

    I will let you finish the arithmetic , ( I got 5.52m)
