**Calc Math**

A plane is heading on a bearing of 200° with an air speed of 400 km/h when it is blown off course by a wind of 100 km/h from the northeast. Determine the resultant ground velocity of the plane. What was your solution to answering this problem?

**Physics**

A plane is flying 126 m/s east relative to the air. The wind is blowing 32 m/s south relative to the ground. Determine the plane's velocity relative to the ground. Velocity (relative to the ground) magnitude = Velocity (relative to the ground) direction = ° E of S

**Calculus/Vectors**

An airplane heads due south with an air speed of 480km/h. Measurements made from the ground indicate that the plane's ground speed is 528km/h at 15 degrees east of south. Calculate the wind speed.

**Algebra II**

The heading of a plane is 27.7 degrees NE, and its air speed is 255 mi.h. If the wind is blowing from the south with a velocity of 42.0 mi/h, find the actual direction of travel of the plane, and its ground speed.
