Doing ex N17 p 4.37 and just wondering what I’m doing incorrectly…I’ll try and pop a picture up as describing would be too complicated

The question asks >distance from A<.

TE=5x60/50=6deg

The question asks you to turn 12deg left at B. First 6deg will bring you parallel to the track, then PLUS another 6deg will bring you to the C. The second 6deg is Closing Angle.

You now have a triangle where both TE and CA are 6deg each. That means the distance from B to C is the same as distance from A to B.

The answer: distance from A to C is 50nm + 50nm = 100nm.

Time is irrelevant, not asked, but you can tell it will be another 18mins from B to C.

Hope above make sense.
