Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Alura on Monday, September 6, 2010 at 11:15pm.

a plane has an airspeed of 200 mph. the pilot wants to reach a destination 600 miles east but a wind is blowing 50 mph 30 degrees North of East. What direction must the pilot head the plane in order to reach the destination?
I asked my Lab T.A. and she helped me understand that I basically need to draw two vectors and get the average of the two but all of my answers are wrong so far...
