Michael and Jacob are standing on two docks that are 20 miles apart. They are watching a ship that is out in the ocean. The angle between the dock and the line connecting Michael and the ship is 48°, and the angle between the other dock and the line connecting Jacob and the ship is 37°. A triangle with points labeled Ship, Jacob, and Michael is shown. The length between Michael and Jacob is 20 miles. The angle between the ship, Michael, and Jacob is 48 degrees. The angle between the ship, Jacob, and Michael is 37 degrees. If the ship can travel to either dock, which dock would be closest? Explain your answer. Michael’s dock would be closer because the angle opposite is smaller. Jacob’s dock would be closer because the angle opposite is smaller. Michael’s dock would be closer because the docks are 20 miles apart. Jacob’s dock would be closer because the docks are 20 miles apart.
