Question #34178

An engineer wishes to measure the diameter of a hole in the ground, but his tape measure isn't long enough. He places stakes at points A and B on opposite sides of the hole, then places a third stake at a point C at the edge of the hole somewhere between A and B. His tape is long enough to measure the distance from C to A at 28 feet and the distance from C to B at 26 feet. From the point C, the angle between the lines AC and CB is 158°. How far is it from A to B?
