A ship leaves the island of Guam and sails a distance 295 at an angle 35.0 north of west.
How far must it sail so that its resultant displacement will be 100 directly east of Guam?

• physics -

You need some units for distance.

100E= 295@35 NofW+ Far
100E=295cos35 W + 295sin35N + howfar

so how far= East(100+295cos35)+South(295sin35)

the unit of the distance is km but plz can you give me the answer directly
