Problem
The treasure map in the figure gives the following directions to the buried treasure: "Start at the old oak tree, walk due north for 510 paces, then due east for 130 paces. Dig." But when you arrive, you find an angry dragon just north of the tree. To avoid the dragon, you set off along the yellow brick road at an angle 60 60 (Page 65) east of north. After walking 360 paces you see an opening through the woods. The figure shows a treasure map. The north is at the top of the map. A tree is located at the lower left corner of the map. A yellow brick road comes upwards to the right from the tree at 60 degrees to the north. Treasure is located above the yellow brick road, closer to the left edge of the map.
