Question

Oasis B is 10 km due east of oasis A. Starting from oasis A, a camel walks 23 km in a direction 15.0° south of east and then
walks 33 km due north. If it is to then walk directly to B, (a) how far and (b) in what direction (relative to the positive x-axis within the range (-180°, 180°]) should it walk?
