1.) A park in a subdivision has a triangular shape. Two adjacent sides of the park are 533 and 525 feet. The angle between the sides is 53 degrees. Find the area of the park to the nearest square foot. My answer: 111,739. Is that correct? 2.) The diameter of a basketball rim is 18 inches. A standard basketball has a circumference of 30 inches. What is the distance between the ball and the rim in a shot in which the ball goes exactly in the center of the rim? My answer: 4.225. Is that correct?

    the required value = ( 18 - d)/2 where d = diameter of the basketball and this comes to same as you got
