Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 11:40am.

A pilot must fly his plane to a town which is 200 km from his starting point in a direction 30 degrees N of E. He must make the trip in 1/2 hr. An 80km/h wind blows in a direction 30 degrees E of S. Find the speed of the plane relative to the ground, the speed relative to air and the heading of the plane.

The answers are 400 km/h, 408 km/h and 41 degrees N of E. I don't know how to do this problem. I think I did my diagram wrong.
