The eye of a hurricane passes over Grand Bahama Island. It is moving in a direction 60.0° north of west with a speed of v1 = 37.0 km/h. Exactly three hours later, the course of the hurricane shifts due north, and its speed slows to v2 = 27.0 km/h, as shown in Figure 3-30. How far from Grand Bahama, in kilometers, is the hurricane 4.50 h after it passes over the island?

2. Relevant equations

sine, cosine

3. The attempt at a solution

i ended up getting 104 km using tangent to find the angle then using the angle and opposite to find adgacent which i got 104. the sides were 111km and 40.5 km after multiplying with the velocity conversion.
