1. A yacht, Y leaves a harbour, H and travels 45km due North until it reaches a marker buoy B. At B, the yacht turns on a bearing of 290 degrees from B and travels for a further 56km until it reaches a lighthouse L. at L it turns back again and travels back in a straight line to H.

Calculate

A) the total distance travelled.

b. the bearing of L from H

c. the shortest distance between y and b on the return journey from L to H

Thanks for your help in advance,

Dan
