Solution to the problem of the (previous) week
Problem:The positions of two points and which are difficult to access can be determined by measuring angles.
(The results should be correct to four decimal places.)
Solution:Since , the line segments and intersect perpendicularly at point . Then, we can successively determine the lengths of the line segments:
So, the area of the shaded region is
