**Steve**, Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 11:09amAssuming that north was a typo, leaving Jojo on the south side of AB,

Let Jojo be h mi S of the line AB.

h tan 50°33' + h tan 39°27' = 125

1.215h + 0.823h = 125

h = 125/2.038 = 61.335 mi

Now, letting b be the distance from B, and a that from A,

b = h/cos 50°33' = 61.335/0.635 = 96.59 mi

a = h/cos 39°27' = 61.335/0.772 = 79.45 mi
