Two cars lost in a blinding snowstorm are traveling across a large field, each thinking they are on the road, as shown in the figure on the left. They collide. If the distance x is 150 meters and the red car is travelling at 19.1 mph, how fast to the nearest hundredth of a mph was the blue car travelling? (As unlikely as this event seems it actually happened to the problem author's wife.)

-The angle on the bottom left hand corner is the red car and it is 45 degrees; the angle on the bottom right hand corner of the triangle is the blue car and it is 60 degrees
