(a) A balloon is observed simultaneously from three points $$A, B$$ and $$C$$ on a straight road directly beneath it. The angular elevation at $$B$$ is twice that at $$A$$ and the angular elevation at $$C$$ is thrice that at $$A$$. If the distance between $$A$$ and $$B$$ is a and the distance between $$B$$ and $$C$$ is $$b$$, find the height of the balloon in terms of $$a$$ and $$b$$.
(b) Find the area of the smaller part of a disc of radius $$10$$ cm, cut off by a chord $$AB$$ which subtends an angle of at the circumference.
A triangle $$ABC$$ has sides $$AB=AC=5$$ cm and $$BC=6$$ cm Triangle $$A'B'C'$$ is the reflection of the triangle $$ABC$$ in a line parallel to $$AB$$ placed at a distance $$2$$ cm from $$AB$$, outside the triangle $$ABC$$. Triangle $$A''B''C''$$ is the reflection of the triangle $$A'B'C'$$ in a line parallel to $$BC$$ placed at a distance of $$2$$ cm from $$B'C'$$ outside the triangle $$A'B'C'$$. Find the distance between $$A$$ and $$A''$$.
