22. Several streets intersect to form triangles near Dupont Circle in
Washington, D.C. One such triangle is formed by New Hampshire
Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, and 16th Street. The section of New
Hampshire Avenue is about 3100 ft long. The section of 16th Street is
about 3500 ft long. The angle enclosed by the two streets has a measure
of about 35. What is the area of this triangle, to the nearest 100 ft2?
