Trig Function Question

It's been years since I've worked any trig, and I was working an algebraic equation determining a distance between 2 points when the vectors are on a 90 degree tangent to each other from a common origin point (2 people walking, one at 2 mph and one at 4 mph). If it were a trig question, I'd have a known hypotenuse of 3 miles, and unknown values for a and b, other than b=2a.


I just plain can't remember beyond this point.
