Question: A boat leaves San Pedro and travels 35 km 27o west of south before its engine dies. You left San Pedro earlier in the morning and have traveled 25 km 10o south of west by the time the first boat's distress call reaches you.

Part A: How far (in km) from and in what direction is the first boat relative to you at that point?

Please do a step by step solution since I'm kind of lost with this question.
