The Crows-nest of a yacht is 50.0 m above water level. The angle of depression from the crows nest to a buoy due west of the boat is 40/degree/. The angle of depression from another buoy S70/degress/W of the yacht is 34/degrees/. How far apart are the buoys?

The answer is 27.3m...but how did they do it?
