Distance Across a Canyon

To find the distance across a canyon, a surveying team locates points A and B on one side of the canyon and point C on the other side of the canyon. The distance between point A and B is 85 yards. The measure of angle CAB is 68 degrees and the measure of angle CBA is 75 degrees. Find the distance across the canyon.

Thanks
