Textbook Problem

In Exercises 39 to 45, angle measures should be given to the nearest degree; distance should be given to the nearest tenth of a unit.While a helicopter hovers 1000 ft above the water, its pilot spies a man in a lifeboat through an angle of depression of 28 ∘ . Along a straight line, a rescue boat can also be seen through an angle depression of 14 ∘ . How far is the rescue boat from the lifeboat? To determine

To calculate: The distance between the rescue boat from the lifeboat.

Explanation

Given:

While a helicopter hovers 100ft above the water, its pilot spies a man in a lifeboat through an angle of depression of 28. Along a straight line, a rescue boat can also seen through an angle of depression of 14.

Calculation:

Now, we have to find the value of BE.
