Hello I am new to this forum and I am desperate, I cannot figure this out, my professor gives us four assignments a year, on subjects that she will not lecture on at all and we have to read and find out on our own and right a report on it and then do four problems she chooses, well in theory I understand completely, but when I get to the 2d and 3d I really get confused and cant solve the problems, really frustrating not having any notes to look over. Here is the problem I am getting stuck on.

An airplane Pilot sets a compass course due west and maintains an airspeed of 220km/h. After flying for .500 hours, the pilot finds the plane over a town 120km west and 20km south of the planes starting point. A) Find the wind velocity(magnatude and direction). B) If the wind velocity is 40km/h due south, in what direction should the pilot set the course to travel due west? Use the same airspeed of 220km/h

please help. Thanks
