Homework Help: physics

Posted by bobjahng on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 at 7:33pm.

In a World Cup soccer match, Juan is running due north toward the goal with a speed of 7.80 m/s relative to the ground. A teammate passes the ball to him. The ball has a speed of 13.6 m/s and is moving in a direction of 32.5 degrees east of north, relative to the ground.

a)What is the magnitude of the ball's velocity relative to Juan?

b)What is the direction of the ball's velocity relative to Juan?

How do you start this off? I found the y component and subtracted it to find the answer for the first part, but it says that my answer is wrong.
