  1. distance AB = (1.5)(600) km or 900 km
    distance BC = 1.5(400) km or 600 km
    I assume you drew your diagram correctly.
    So now you have triangle ABC with AB = 900, BC = 600 and angle B = 75°

    Use the cosine law to find AC

    Let me know what you did, and what your answer is.

  2. AB = 900km[35o].
    BC = 600km[130o].
    AC = ?

    AC = AB + BC. = 900[35o] + 600[130o]..
    AC = (900*sin35+600*sin130) + (900*cos35+600*cos130)I,
    AC = 975.8 + 351.6i = 1037km[70.2o].
    Bearing of 70.2 Degrees.
