A swamp separates points L and R. To determine the distance between them, Ciana stands at L and looks toward R. She turns about 45° and walks 52 paces from L to point P. From P, she looks at R and estimates that LPR is about 60°. How many paces is it from L to R?

Include a diagram.

An observation helicopter using a laser device determines that the helicopter is 1800 m from a boat in distress. The helicopter is 1200 m from a rescue boat. The angle formed between the helicopter and the two boats is 35°. How far apart are the boats? Include a diagram.
