physics

Two cars lost in a blinding snow storm are traveling across a large field, each thinking they are on the road, as shown in the figure on the left. They collide. If the distance x is 169 meters and the red car is travelling at 15.8 mph, how fast to the nearest hundredth of a mph was the blue car travelling? (As unlikely as this event seems it actually happened to the problem author's wife.)
