I'm having a REALLY hard time with this one. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can someone walk me through this?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 9:38amIf you are using standard notation, then a bearing of 53° would be 53° clockwise from North

make a sketch.

Start the plane at the origin, then draw a line 53° form the y-axis (NOrth) and make it 2.5(550) or 1375 miles long. Complete the right-angled triangle, whose base angle will be 37°

distance north:

y/1375 = sin37

y = 827.5 miles

distance east:

x/1375 = cos 37

x = 1098.1 miles
