A man is flying in a hot-air balloon in a straight line at a constant rate of 5 feet per second, while keeping it at a constant altitude. As he approaches the parking lot of a market, he notices that the angle of depression from his balloon to a friend's car in the parking lot is 37°. A minute and a half later, after flying directly over this friend's car, he looks back to see his friend getting into the car and observes the angle of depression to be 31°. At that time, what is the distance between him and his friend?
This is what I did:
sin112/450 = sin37/x
sin90/292 = sin59/y
y=250ft <-----not the correct answer to the problem.
any help would be appreciated
