A flock of ducks is trying to migrate south for the winter, but they keep being blown off course by a wind blowing from the west at 11{\rm m/s} . A wise elder duck finally realizes that the solution is to fly at an angle to the wind.If the ducks can fly at 17{\rm m/s} relative to the air, in what direction should they head in order to move directly south?
