gotpho Posted February 28, 2008 Report Share Posted February 28, 2008 I have no idea how to approach this problem. Radius of earth is 3963 mi The latitude of Lima, Peru is 12 degree south. About how far from Lima is the south pole? I'm guessing you draw a 12 degree angle from the center in the 4th quadrant of a graph. Thus, you get a triangle but what would be the next step?
