Plug in the specific values for the cos and sin of the given angles. (sin30° = 1/2 cos30° = ?(3)/2, sin 45°=cos45° = ?(2)/2) and solve linear equations. This is especially easy because sin45°=cos45°, so you have A(sin30° + cos30°) = 147. You should be able to finish.

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.
