  3. heading, not bearing.
    From Y, Z is on a bearing of S60E, so that is the plane's heading.

    200 @ N45E = <141.42,141.42>
    z @ S60E = <.866z,-.50z>

    Since Z is directly east of X, you need

    141.42 - 0.50z = 0

    So, evaluate the distance z, and then the distance XZ will be 141.42 + 0.866z
