An airplane's velocity with respect to the air is 580 miles per hour, and it is heading N 60 degrees W. The wind, at the altitude of the plane, is from the southwest and has a velocity of 60 miles per hour. What is the true direction of the plane, and what is its speed woth respect to the ground?

I have no idea where to start!
