From a ship, two lighthouses can be seen bearing N 40 degrees E. After the ship sails at 15 knots on a course of 135 degrees for an hour and 20 mins, the two lighthouses now has a bearing of 10 degrees and 345 degrees.

a) Find the distance of the ship from the latter position to the farther lighthouse?

b) Find the distance between the two lighthouses?
