To determine the distance across a straight river, a surveyor chooses two points P and Q on the bank, where the distance between P and Q is 200 m. At each of these points, a point R on the opposite bank is sighted. The angle having sides PQ and PR is measured to be 63.1º and the angle having sides PQ and QR is measure to be 80.4º.
