Draw a diagram to show the triangular course.

calculate the distance from check point C to checkpoint A giving your answer to a siutable degree of accuracy.

the answer from checkpoint C to checkpoint A is 2km is this correct?

how do I draw this?

next question

A tanker is moving 5 nautical miles (5 knots) on bearing 105 degrees.at 1100 hours (11am) the tanker obserbs a lighthouse on bearing 040 degrees. at midday the lighthouse bears 340 degrees.

Draw a well labelled diagram to show the movement of the tanker between 11am and midday.

calculate the distance in nautical miles from the tanker to the lighthouse at midday.

thanks.

when calculating these questions what are the difrrences in the real worls and maths world?

I.e the earth is not flat.

what else?
