Two hikers on opposite sides of a canyon each stand precisely 525 meters above the canyon floor. They each sight a landmark on the canyon floor on a line directly between them. The angles of depression from each hiker to the landmark meter are 37° and 21°. How far apart are the hikers? Round your answer to the nearest whole meter.

Total distance is \(\Large {525\over \tan 21} +{525\over \tan 37}=525(\cot 21+\cot 37)\) Does this make sense?
