you need to find the length of AB
welshfella
  • welshfella
to do this we need to find the value of angle ACB then we use the Cosine Rule to fin AB

angle ACB = 38+52 = 90 degrees so triangle ACB is right angled so we dont need the cosine rule Just use the pythagoras theorem AB^2 = 60^2 + 40^2
welshfella
  • welshfella
can you find AB?
welshfella
  • welshfella
just add 40^2 + 60^2 then take the square root
welshfella
  • welshfella
use your calculator

  • anonymous
I GET 10
welshfella
  • welshfella
??? 60^2 = 3600 40^2 = 1600 adding 5200 so AB^ 2 = 5200 AB = sqrt 5200
welshfella
  • welshfella
use your calculator to find the square root of 5200

72.11
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes so distance from A to B is 72 km
welshfella
  • welshfella
* sorry 72.11

and b) the direction ?
welshfella
  • welshfella
b) the directions always start from the North line and are clockwise

Its the angle I've drawn around the point B
anonymous
  • anonymous
so its 270 ?
welshfella
  • welshfella
No its not 270 we need to find the value of angle CBA the angle next to it is 52 degrees then our direction will be 360 - 52 -
anonymous
  • anonymous
this is confusing
welshfella
  • welshfella
as triangle ABC is right-angled we casn use trigonometry tan CBA = 60/40 = 1.5
welshfella

welshfella
  • welshfella
does that make it clearer?
welshfella
  • welshfella
|dw:1432991638985:dw|
welshfella
  • welshfella
that angle is 52 degrees as they are interior alternate angles
welshfella
  • welshfella
tan CBA = 1.5 so you can find angle CBA
welshfella
  • welshfella
then the direction = 360 - 52 -
anonymous
  • anonymous
306.5
welshfella
  • welshfella
what did you get for angle CBA?
anonymous
  • anonymous
308 degrees
welshfella
  • welshfella
??? noo on your calculator enter tan-1 then 1.5 - or on some its the other way around
anonymous

56.31
anonymous
  • anonymous
whats 108 for ?
welshfella
  • welshfella
360 - 52 - 56.3
welshfella
  • welshfella
forget the 108 - i got confused also!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea
anonymous
  • anonymous
nd whats 56.3 for ?
welshfella
  • welshfella
thats the value of angle CBA
anonymous
  • anonymous
BUH YEW SAID 360-52= ANGLE CBA WHICH IS 308
welshfella
  • welshfella
so now you have what you require to find the direction it is 360 - 52 -56.3
welshfella
  • welshfella
no i didnt say that
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK NVM
welshfella
  • welshfella
so what do you get for the direction?
anonymous
  • anonymous
251.7
welshfella
  • welshfella
yep thats it
anonymous
  • anonymous
duh thanks
