**agrin04**, Wednesday, March 9, 2011 at 10:07pmAssume that the distance travelled before turning 60 degrees is x

The total distance travelled = x+10

Distance A-B in straight line = x + 6

Use the cosine rule:

(x+6)^2 = x^2 + 100 - (2*x*10*cos(120))

Finish the calculation, you'll find x. Total distance travelled will be (x + 10)
