    Step-by-step explanation:

    Use the equation: sin(Theta)=opposite/ hypotenuse

    X shows the how far from approach

    so sin(26)=1297/x

    rearrange to make: X=1125/sin(26

    so 1125/sin(26)= 2,566.3 miles

    Therefore, it will be 2,566.3 miles from approach

    hope this helps :)

    Have a nice day
