An airplane has to fly eastward to a destination 856 km away. If wind is blowing at 18.0 m/s northward and the air speed of the plane is 161 m/s. In what direction should the plane head to reach its destination.

So I know the direction is south east but can someone give me the formula on how to solve the degrees?
