572 Two forces of 40 pounds and 28 pounds act on an
object. The angle between the two forces is 65°.
Find the magnitude of the resultant force, to the
nearest pound. Using this answer, find the
measure of the angle formed between the resultant
and the smaller force, to the nearest degree.
573 In a triangle, two sides that measure 6 cm and 10
cm form an angle that measures 80°. Find, to the
nearest degree, the measure of the smallest angle in
the triangle.
574 A homeowner wants to increase the size of a
rectangular deck that now measures 14 feet by 22
feet. The building code allows for a deck to have a
maximum area of 800 square feet. If the length and
width are increased by the same number of feet,
find the maximum number of whole feet each
dimension can be increased and not exceed the
building code. [Only an algebraic solution can
