1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
See Attached

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
I used the Pythagorean theorem Vs= the square root of Rv squared plus (Lv-Lc) squared and came up with a voltage source of 100 volts AC. Right??
So how do I figure the voltage between A,C and B,D? I have come up blank on this one, I don't even know where to start.

I say that the answers to 2 & 3 should be switched!

2 Between A and C 141 volts AC

3 Between B and D 0 volts AC
