A lightning bug flies at a velocity of 0.25m/s due east toward another lightning bug seen off in the distance. A light breeze blows from the east on the bug at a velocity of 0.25m/s. What is the resultant velocity of the lightning bug?

Please direct me to even start-I'm totally lost

    The question is confusing because it does not make clear if the 0.25 m/s is the velocity with respect to the ground or the air.

    Presumably the bug is flying through air at 0.25 m/s (the so-called "air speed") and the air is blowing in the opposite direction at 0.25 m/s.

    That would make the resultant velocity (with respect to the ground) zero.

    0 m/s

    damn if i know
