separation and purification scheme

how would i begin this?

we have a mixture of the following:50% benzoic acid, 40% benzoin, 10% dibromobenzene

they give us 1M NaOH, 6M NaOH, 1M HCl, 6M HCl, 1M NaHCO3, saturated sodium chloride, diethyl ether, 95% ethanol, methanol, isopropyl alcohol, acetone, hexane, toluene, methylene chloride, and granular anhydrous sodium sulfate and other solvents for cystalization.

i need to come up with a separation scheme (detailed procedure) and isolate TWO of the compounds in the mixture
