Textbook Problem

A new landowner has a triangular piece of flat land she wishes to fence. Starting at the west corner, she measures the first side to be 80.0 m long and the next to be 105 m. These sides are represented as displacement vectors A from B in Figure 3.61. She then correctly calculates the length and orientation of the third side C. What is her result?
