Geometry Level 4

A man walks along a straight road and observes that the greatest angle subtended by two objects is $$\alpha$$; from the point where this greatest angle is subtended he walks a distance $$c$$ along the road, and finds that the two objects are now in a straight line which makes an angle $$\beta$$ with the road.

Find the distance between the two objects upto three decimal places.

Details and assumptions:

• $$\alpha=60^\circ$$
• $$\beta=30^\circ$$
• $$c=3+\sqrt{3}$$

Hint: Generalise, then specialise.
