A ships captain wants to sail east. His ship experiences a current of 5.0 km/h [N]. The ships engine can produce a speed of 20 km/h. What must the ships heading be and what is the ground velocity of the ship.

I really don't know what to do I was hoping someone can tell me how to solve it using x/y components and I can use this example to solve the other question I have.
