  8. 8. Example 1 From a specific point in a school classroom, students can see the the top of a cell phone tower if they look 41° west of north. Traveling 4.1 miles due west from the school, the same cell phone tower is seen in the direction 26° west of north. How far is the school from the top of the cell phone tower?
  9. 9. Example 1 From a specific point in a school classroom, students can see the the top of a cell phone tower if they look 41° west of north. Traveling 4.1 miles due west from the school, the same cell phone tower is seen in the direction 26° west of north. How far is the school from the top of the cell phone tower? First, we need to set up our triangle.
