Q:
# An observer (O) spots a plane flying at a 35° angle to his horizontal line of sight. If the plane is flying at an altitude of 17,000 ft., what is the distance (x) from the plane (P) to the observer (O)?20,757 feet24,251 feet 29,639 feet 31,262 feet

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:here are numerous information's already given in the question. Based on those information's, the answer to the question can be easily deduced.Angle at which the plane is flying in respect to the observer = 35 degreeAltitude at which the plane is flying = 17000 feetThe distance at which the plane is flying from the observer = x Thenx = 17000/sin 35 = 17000/0.57357 = 29638.93 feet = 29639 feetFrom the above deduction, we can conclude that the correct option among all the options given in the question is the third option.
