A plane leaves Seattle, flies 85 mi at 22 degrees north of east, and then changes direction to 48 degrees south of east. After flying 115 mi in this new direction, the pilot must make an emergency landing on a field. The Seattle airport facility dispatches a rescue crew.
a) In what direction and how far should the crew fly to go directly to the field? Use the method of components to solve.
