(Puck A is 65 degrees north of east, puck B is 37 degrees south of east.)

I used MaVa = MaVa(cos 65) + MbVb(cos 37), which gives me

.1265 = .0097202Va + .03833Vb. Since the total momentum in the Y direction was zero, I also used

Va(sin 65) = Vb(sin 37)

Va = .6640Vb or Vb = 1.506Va.

Every time I plug in those numbers I get a wrong value! Am I missing some important concept, or am I just making an algebraic error?
