1. did you make a sketch?

for a) wouldn't you just add up the two distances ?

b) my diagram is ABC, with angle B = 5.1°
a = 599.8 , b=748.4

by the sine law,
sinA/599.8 = sin5.1/748.4
A = 4.01037...°

angle C = 180-5.1-4.01037... = .......

now that you have angle C, use the sine law again to find AB
