Here is a problem I need help with it :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A ship is steaming 45 S of W at 30 km/h. At that moment 50 km due south of it, an enemy submarine heading 30 W of N, spots it. At what speed must a torpedo from the sub travel if it's to strike the ship ? Assume that the sub fires straight ahead from its forward tubes, and overlook the fact that this problem is a bit unrealistic.

I drew a diagram and labeled it but unfortunately couldn't go any farther

Thanks
