If you mean 30 degrees West of North, then

Northcomponent: 24Cos30

Eastcomponent: -24Sin30

Now if you meant 30 degrees North of West, it is something else.

Hi, actually Bob, your answer is not 30 degrees, but 60 degrees. 30 degrees does not refer to the angle inside the triangle formed by the x and y components.
