  1. This is messed up. I can only assume that Y is 20km away from X. Otherwise there is no way to figure anything out, since you give no other distances.

    If you draw the diagram, you can easily see that angles
    X=30°, Y=45°, Z=105°

    If we label the sides opposite X,Y,Z as x,y,z then using the law of sines,

    x/sin30° = y/sin45° = 20/sin105°

  6. Just use the TOA ( tangent) = 3/5 = 0.6 . Tan inverse of 0.6 is approximately 31 degrees. Subtract 31 from 150 and your final answer will be 119 degrees.

  10. Using the sine rule , they only gave us the distance of X to Y and the remaining wasn't given so we use the sign rule to get the distance of the remaining the final answer is: Y from Z is 10.4km and Z from X is 14.6km
