A person is watching a boat from the top of a lighthouse. The boat is approaching the lighthouse directly. When first noticed the angle of depression to the boat is 16° 23'. When the boat stops, the angle of depression is 49° 29'. The lighthouse is 200 feet tall. How far did the boat travel from when it was first noticed until it stopped? Round to the nearest hundredth.

If the instructions for a problem ask you to use the smallest possible domain to completely graph two periods of y = 5 + 3 cos 2(x  ), what should be used for Xmin and Xmax? Explain your answer. @kesumonu I also need help with this one and after this @glucy7 and I won't bother you...
