    Another Trig

    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.

    remember that an altitude drawn from the vertex angle to the base forms two congruent right triangles.
