    I'm know the answer; I just am confused with the first step because I don't know how to properly draw it. This is what I have, but it's incorrect because I'm supposed to use cosine. |dw:1444005671114:dw|

    |dw:1444010976932:dw| \[\sin \theta =\frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }\] The hypotenuse would be the ridge distance Distance is d \[\sin 25=\frac{ 5280 }{ d }\] \[d \sin25=5280\] \[d=\frac{ 5280 }{ \sin 25 }\]
