Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0141miles...Distance between two points W and E = 146 miles and B is the position of B (balloon) Angle BWE =55 degrees and angle BEW =67 degrees therefore angle WBE = 1805567 =58 degrees Using sine formula w/sin (55)= b/sin(58) w= 146{sin 55/ sin 58) =141 miles
