Okay I am soo confused with these two questions:

The resultant of two forces acting on a body has a magnitude of 80 pounds. The angles between the resultant and the forces are 20° and 52°. Find the magnitude of the larger force.

Without the wind, a plane would fly due east at a rate of 150 mph. The wind is blowing southeast at a rate of 50 mph. The wind is blowing at a 45° angle from due east. How far off of the due east path does the wind blow the plane?

for this i got 10.8 degrees?
