a highway is to be built between two towns, one of which lies 35.0 km south and 72.0 km west of the other. what is the shortest length of highway that can be built between the two towns, and at what angle would this highway be with respect due to west? can some one solve this problem step by step?

I see the angle S of W at an angle arctan(35/72).
The length? 35/SinAngleabove
