You are working as a fire ranger and you spot a fire that is 15 km away from your tower. Turning an angle of 21° you can see the next tower, 20 km directly east from you.

Fire Ranger During the summer months, British Columbia experiences numerous forest fires. You are working as a fire ranger in the interior of British Columbia and you spot a fire that is 15 km away from your tower. Turning an angle of 21° you can see the next tower, 20 km directly east from you. Your friend is working at that tower and can also see the fire.
