**Anonymous**, Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 4:05pmThere should be units on these numbers, so for the sake of the question I will use meters. So this is a problem of a right triangle, 60 degrees plus 30 degrees is 90 degrees, the distances they travel are two sides of the triangle, and the distance between them when they stop and face each other is the third side so let's use the pythagorian theorem:

Side 1(a)= 28.0 m

Side 2(b)= 16.0 m

Hypotenuse = c

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

(28.0)^2 + (16.0)^2 = c^2

784 + 256 = c^2

1040 = c^2

1040^(1/2) = c

c = 32.25 m

When Ricardo and Jane stopped to face each other they were 32.25 meters (or whatever unit you were given) away from each other
