**Reiny**, Monday, May 2, 2011 at 4:30pmmake a sketch with O the origin

OP = 480 and south along the y-axis.

draw OR as the resultant of length 528 and angle POR = 15°

Complete the parallogram with OQ =PR and QR = OP

by cosine law:

PR^2 = 480^2 + 528^2 + 2(480)(528)cos15°

PR = 139.9125

So the wind speed is 139.9 km/h
