(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Knowing that the velocity of block B with respect to block A is

vB/A = 5.6 m/s at 70°, determine the velocities of A and B.

2. Relevant equations

vB/A = vB - vA

3. The attempt at a solution

I break down the vectors into their rectangular components

vB = vB(x) + vB(y)

vA = vA(x) + vA(y)

vB/A(x) = vB(x) - vA(x)

vB/A(y) = vB(y) - vA(y)

but I end up with 2 unknowns in the equations.

I probably have to find the angle θ(b) but I have no idea how
