Two separate seismograph stations receive indication of an earthquake in the form of a wave traveling to them in a straight line from the epicenter and shaking the ground at their locations. Station B is 60 due east of station A. The epicenter is located due north of station A and 45 north of due west from station B.
Part A

Determine the distance from the epicenter to A.

Part B

Determine the distance from the epicenter to B.

Part C

Station C is located an additional 10 east of B. At what angle does C report the direction of the epicenter to be?
