Example 5: Problem-Solving Application
The Pilatusbahn in Switzerland is the worldâ€™s steepest cog
railway. Its steepest section makes an angle of about 25.6º with
the horizontal and rises about 0.9 km. To the nearest hundredth
of a kilometer, how long is this section of the railway track?

A surveyor wants to the measure the width of a
river at point A. She places stakes 100 feet apart
on the far side of the river and she is standing at
point A. She finds that the measurement of angle
BAC is 27 degrees and ABC is 90 degrees. How
wide is the river?
