a boeing 747 jet maintains an airspeed of 650 miles per hours in a southwesterly direction. the velocity of the jet stream is a constant 80 miles per hour from the west. find the actual speed and direction of the aircraft.

how do i set this up? can anyone walk me through the steps, i can't figure it out. :[
