ANOTHER ONE NEEDING HELP...PLEASE! Two ships leave a harbor at the same time, traveling on courses that have an angle of 100 degrees between them. If the first ship travels at 24 miles per hour and the second ship travels at 43 miles per hour, how far apart are the two ships after 2.9 hours?

draw a picture of a triangle, multiply 2.9 hours by how far the ship can go in an hour to get the length of the legs. then solve the triangle using whatever technique you've been taught
