Homework Help: TRIG

Posted by Daisy on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 12:17am.

An airplane flying at 550 miles per hour has a bearing of 53. After flying for 2.5 hours, how far north and how far east will the plane have traveled from its point of departure?

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?
