Can anyone help me answer this question please?

Two ships leave port at 13.00
Ship A travels on a bearing of 075° at a speed of 12 kilometres per hour.
Ship B travels on a bearing of 110° at a speed of 30 kilometres per hour.

A) How far apart are the ships at 15.30?

B) What is the bearing of ship A from ship B?

This is the diagram I drew, is any of it correct? I'm not quite sure what to do with it...

Never mind my previous post. It's been a long day

Your diagram isn't correct.

Bearings are measured clockwise from north.

Start by drawing a line straight up, label it north and then measure your angles and redraw your diagram from that point.
