Ship A is 18.5km from a port P on a beearing of 045 degree and ship B is 26.4km from point P on a bearing of 105 degree. Calculate the bearing of A from B and the distance AB.

  • Maths -

    If P is (0,0)
    A is at (13,13)
    B is at (25.5,-6.83)

    A-B = (-12.5,19.83)
    bearing is 327.77°
    AB = √(12.5^2 + 19.83^2) = 23.44
