A ship leaves the island of Guam and sails a distance 295 at an angle 35.0 north of west.

How far must it sail so that its resultant displacement will be 100 directly east of Guam?

You need some units for distance.

100E= 295@35 NofW+ Far

100E=295cos35 W + 295sin35N + howfar

so how far= East(100+295cos35)+South(295sin35)
