1. calculate the distance AC
2. Find the bearing of C from A

  • trigonometry -

    I made a sketch and got a triangle ABC where AB = 20
    BC = 50 and angle B = 70°

    by the cosine law:
    AC^2 = 20^2+50^2-2(20)(50)cos70
    = 2215.959...
    AB =47.07 m

    Using the sine law, find angle A
