Since cos 45° = sin 45°, subtracting the first equation from the second gives A(sin 30° + cos 30°) = 147. Hence A = 147/(sin 30° + cos 30°) = 147(cos 30°  sin 30°)/(cos²30°  sin²30°) = 147(cos 30°  sin 30°)/cos 60° = 147((?3)/2  1/2)/(1/2) = 147?3  147. From the first equation, B = A cos 30° / cos 45° = (147?3  147)((?3)/2)/(1/?2) = (441?2  147?6)/2.
