Sorry to be a bother but I have one more question.
A golfer consistently drives a golf ball 210 m. If she hits a drive down a fairway that is 70 m wide, what is the maximum angle between a drive to the left and a drive to the right that would still be on the fairway? Round your answer to the nearest degree.
sketch an isosceles with legs = 210 m and base 70 m ... calculate the size of the vertex angle.
