1. The angles of a triangle are A = 47° 46', B= 65° 12', C=67° 2', and the radius of inscribed circle is to feet; determine the sides.

2. From a vessel which is pursuing a due easterly course, two lighthouses A, B are observed, the former bearing due north, the latter 14° east of north. After running a certain distance, B bears due north, A 23° west of north. The distance between the lighthouses being known to be 30 miles, find the length run by the vessel in the interval between the observations.
