An airplane flies 470 miles from point $A$ to point $B$ with a bearing of 25 degrees. It then flies from 250 miles from point $B$ to point $C$ with a bearing of 40 degrees. Find the distance and the bearing from A to point C.

Work

I understand that I need to use law of cosines for the side $b$ which is opposite of the angle $B$. But I have a hard time with find what is the angle $B$ is. I forgot many things from geometry. How to determine the angle from point $A$ to point $C$?

Thanks
