Draw a circle centre B and radius 23km.
Draw a line going due east from A.
Show that they don't intersect.

I can't see where it says that on the picture you attached.
Furthermore, if you had to do it without using the drawing you made in part (a), you would have to do it using coordinate geometry which would be extremely messy.
So if it does say somewhere to do it without using the scale drawing you made in the previous part, I would presume that it's a typo on the paper.
5. using trig, vertical distance from a to b is 23.14km which is larger than 23 so ship will be 0.14km out of range when is closest to b (this is when ship is directly below b)

Perfect!
