a tugboat is 36km due north of lighthouse C. Lighthouse B is directly east of lighthouse C. The lighthouses are 53km apart. Find the bearing og lighthouse B from the tugboat and the distance of lighthouse B from the tugboat.
I see a straightforward right-angled triangle TCB
where C is 90°, CT=36 and CB = 53
using the tangent ratios angle T = 55.8°
I will leave it up to you to find the angle using whatever format your course or text book uses.
I would call it a bearing of 124.2°
idk ayy soz not soz bro
