A surveyor needs to determine the distance between two points, $$A$$ and $$B$$, that lie on opposite banks of a river. A point $$C$$ is chosen $${160}$$ meters from point $$A$$, on the same side of the river as $$A$$. The measures of $$\angle BAC$$ and $$\angle ACB$$ are 41° and 55°, respectively. Approximate the distance from $$A$$ to $$B$$ to the nearest meter.

Two lighthouses are 30 miles apart on each side of the shorelines running north and south, as shown. Each lighthouse keeper spots a boat in the distance. One lighthouse keeper notes the location of the boat as 40° east of south, and the other lighthouse keeper marks the boat as 32° west of south. What is the distance from the boat to each of the lighthouses at the time it was spotted? Round your answers to the nearest mile.

Your school is challenging classes to compete in a triathlon. The race begins with a swim along the shore and then continues with a bike ride for 4 miles. School officials want the race to end at the place it began, so after the 4-mile bike ride, racers must turn 30° and run 3.5 miles directly back to the starting point. What is the total length of the race? Round your answer to the nearest tenths place.
