9. (10 pts.) A right triangle has one angle of 35° and one leg of
length 100 meters. What are the two possible lengths for the
hypotenuse?? [You may want to sketch the two situations.]
10. (5 pts.) A triangle has two sides with lengths 5 feet and 8
feet. If the two sides meet in an angle of 30°, what is the
exact length of the third side??
11. (10 pts.) Use the Law of Sines to solve the triangle with
α
= 110°,
γ
= 30°, and c = 6. You may assume that the standard
labelling scheme is used.
12. (5 pts.) Determine whether one, two, or no triangles result
from the following data. You do not have to solve the triangles
that might result. You may assume that the standard labelling
scheme is used.
a = 3, b = 6,
α
= 32°

13. (10 pts.) To measure the height of the top of a distant
object on a level plane, a surveyor takes two sightings of the
top of the object 1000 feet apart. The first sighting, which is
nearest the object, results in an angle of elevation of 60°. The
second sighting, which is most distant from the object, results
in an angle of elevation of 30°. If the transit used to make the
sightings is 5 feet tall, what is the height of the object.
[Hint: Make a diagram of the situation. The distance from the
base of the object is unknown. ]
14. (5 pts.)
If the polar coordinates of a point are given by
(r,
θ
) = (9.5,110°), find the rectangular coordinates for the
point. In doing this, make clear which values are exact and
which are approximations.
15. (5 pts.)
If the rectangular coordinates of a point are
given by (x,y) = (5,5
√
3), obtain polar coordinates for the
point.
16. (10 pts.) (a) Obtain all solutions to the equation below,
and then (b) list the solutions
