A plane heads 20° north of east at 200 m/s. The wind blows 60° north of east at 50 m/s. What is the resultant velocity of the plane?

2. Relevant equations

Δv= v2-v1 or Δv= v2+(-v1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I know you have to solve for the x and y, but I don't know how to do that. Then I know once you get your two answers, you use pythagorean theorem to get the final answer.
