# MATH

AN AIRPLANE HEADS DUE NORTH 100MPH. IT EXPERIENCES A 20 MPH WIND FLOW IN THE DIRECTION S45(DEGREES)E. DETERMINE THE SPEED AND DIRECTION OF THE AIRPLANE.

Dreaded vectors. Draw your vector diagram and do each part individually then use the x and y components to get the final component for velocity (speed + direction)
