if a car 1 is traveling north at 13m/s

and another car (2) is driving 20 degrees north of west at 7.0m/s

1.What is the velocity of car 1 relative to car 2

2.What is the velocity of car 2 relative to car 1?

i don't understand how to solve this? could someone help, are the relative velocities different?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

My attempt...

components of car 2

sin 20 = op/hyp = op/7

y=2.39 North

cos20=x/7

x=6.58 West

then i dont know what to do
