9. A hot-air balloon is seen over Tucson, Arizona, simultaneously by two observers at points A and B that are 1.75 mi apart on level ground and in line with the balloon. The angles of elevation are as shown here. How high above ground is the balloon?

10. A wheel of cheese in the shape of a right circular cylinder is 18 cm in diameter and 5 cm thick. If a wedge of cheese with a central angle of 15º is cut from the wheel, find the volume of the cheese wedge.
