What is the distance between town A and B? (there is no info missing - thats all that it is).

I think I manged to solve it with some logical thinking but I am still having problems doing it properly (with equations and all). I think the answer is 32km. (I won't explain how I got that because I don't want it to affect on your thinking..)
