I understand that it needs to be broken up into its components, but I am unable to get the answer (320km @ 10(degrees) north of west). Thanks for any help.

C=A-B (the displacement from plane 2 to plane 1)

Good. So what are the components of A and B? (Call East +x, and North +y)C=A-B (the displacement from plane 2 to plane 1)

Ax= (-220km)cos32Good. So what are the components of A and B? (Call East +x, and North +y)

Ay= (220km)sin32

Bx= (140km)cos65

By=(140km)sin65

OK.Ax= (-220km)cos32

Ay= (220km)sin32

Careful: The angle here is given with respect to the North (y), not the East (x).Bx= (140km)cos65

By=(140km)sin65

Ahh yes, thank you! I have found the solution.Careful: The angle here is given with respect to the North (y), not the East (x).
