**Reiny**, Friday, March 26, 2010 at 5:34pmI will assume that you are using the standard aircraft navigation which has 0 degrees at North and goes clockwise.

So I see a triangle with sides 150 and 240 with a contained angle of 110.666667 degrees

Using the cosine law ...

so distance^2 = 150^2 + 240^2 - 2(150)(240)cos110.66667

= 105511.0006

distance = √105511.0006

= 324.8 miles
