(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I set out on a compass heading of 15.0 degrees west of south for 23.4km.

I turn 20.5 degrees east of south and travel another 32.0km.

What is my displacement?

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure if there are any. But these should help.

Ax = A cos θ

Ay = A sin θ

Bx = B cos θ

By = B sin θ

3. The attempt at a solution

Alright, I'm not sure at all of this but:

Ax = -23.4km cos 75 = -6.05

Ay = -23.4 sin 75 = -22.6

That's all I've come up with. Can someone tell me if I'm doing this right, and guide me through the process of finding a solution?

Thanks in advance.
