    Answer:

    14 miles.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The First street, the Main street, and the Oak street forms a right triangle and the angle between the First street and the Oak street is x such that, tan x = 7/5. {Given}

    The distance from the intersection point of the First street and the Main street to Oak street along the First street is 10 miles and we have to calculate the distance (d) of Oak street from the same intersection point along the Main street.

    Now, using trigonometry on the above mentioned right triangle

    \tan x = \frac{7}{5} = \frac{d}{10}

    ⇒ d = 14 miles. (Answer)
