A 50-m steel tape that is is 0.02 m too long was used to measure the distance between two points A and B. If the measured distance was 160.42 m, calculate the correct distance between A and B.

A.   160.356 m C.   160.844 m
B.   160.484 m D.   160.563 m


The following interior angles (in degree) of a triangular traverse were measured with the same precision.

Angle Value No. of Measurement
A 41 2
B 77 6
C 63 2


What is the most probable value of angle C, in degrees?

A.   62.423° C.   62.571°
B.   62.874° D.   62.745°


A +0.8% grade meets a -0.4% grade at km 12 + 850 with elevation 35 m. The maximum allowable change in grade per station is 0.2%. Determine the length of the curve.

A.   300 m C.   80 m
B.   240 m D.   120 m
