**Reiny**, Monday, May 17, 2010 at 8:04pmlet the plane's position be P

so in triangle ABP, angle A = 30° ( a bearing of 120 = 90+30)

let's find angle P

sinP/250 = sin 30/200

(case 1)

angle P = 38.682

then angle A = 113.328°

BP/sin113.328 = 200/sin30

BP = 372.63 km

case 2

angle P = 141.318

then angle A = 8.682°

BP/sin8.682 = 200/sin30

BP = 60.38 km

both answers make sense, since the triangle results in the "ambiguous case"
