Homework Help: physics

Posted by Chip on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 8:22pm.

The nine Ring Wraiths want to fly from Barad-Dur to Rivendell. Rivendell is directly north of Barad-Dur. The Dark Tower reports that the wind is coming from the west at 52 miles per hour. In order to travel in a straight line, the Ring Wraiths decide to head northwest. At what speed should they fly (omit units)?

I drew it out but got lost from there, help would be nice.
