As for this problem you're describing, does a diagram come with it to explain where A, B, C, D are in relation to each other? Unless we have some idea of the spatial relationship between C and D it is impossible to tell where C is.
You say "walks a distance of 1000 feet" to C - in what direction?
Get a piece of paper and draw a line representing 1000 ft (which is AC).
Draw a line at 15 degrees to this. All we know is that on that second line there is a point B which (from the definition of the question) could be *anywhere*. Unless there's some other information somewhere, for example, how far it is from B to C, or what the angle ABC is, you can't solve this problem.
