Hi Everyone...

For a homework problem I need to locate a cell phone using triangulation. Three cell towers form an equilateral triangle with 4.1 mile sides. The transmitting cell phone is somewhere inside the the triangle formed by the towers. The transmit power of the phone is unknown.

The received powers measured at the towers are:

at tower A: 0.00822 microwatts

at tower B: 0.03442 microwatts

at tower C: 0.00972 microwatts.

Find the location of the phone using only this information. The answer should be in the form of x and y coordinates for the phone and each of the three towers.

THANK YOU
