Two roads intersect at an angle of 48º. A car and truck collide at the

intersection, and then leave the scene of the accident. The car travels at

100 km h down one road, while the truck goes 80 km h down the other road.

Fifteen minutes after the accident, a police helicopter locates the car and pulls it over. Twenty minutes after the accident, a police cruiser pulls over the truck. How far

apart are the car and the truck at this time?
