13. The glide slope is the path a plane uses while it is landing on
a runway. The glide slope usually makes a 3� angle with the
ground. A plane is on the glide slope and is 1 mile (5280 feet)
from touchdown. Use the tangent ratio and a calculator to
find EF, the plane’s altitude, to the nearest foot.

5. The law of cosines is a formula to find the length of the third side of
any triangle given the lengths of two sides and the measure of the
�
�
�
included angle. (Note: The law of cosines applies to any triangle,
but deriving it for an obtuse triangle requires more knowledge than
�
�����
�
you have learned so far.) In the figure, suppose the lengths b and c
�
and the measure of �A are known. Develop the law of cosines to find a.
Explain your answer. (Hint: Use the cosine function and the Pythagorean Theorem.)
