Need help with a navigation problem...

HI guys,

Ok, here is the question. I understand how to get the NDB true direction, but for the love of god, i cant understand how they came up with 273 Radial as the one the aircraft has intercepted.. Anyone?

An aircraft maintaining heading 140(M) at 057E (VAR 12E) takes a relative bearing reading of 295 from an NDB station co-located with a VOR at 32N 088E (VAR 8E). Find the true direction of the straight line that should be plotted from the NDB to the aircraft on a Mercator chart. Which radial has the aircraft intercepted at that moment? (Use mean latitude 27N).

Correct answer: R-273, 274
