## Homework Statement

A plane is taking off from an airport directly west of the airport it wishes to touch down in. The plane in still air can travel with a constant speed of 730 km/h. If a wind is blowing constantly at 92 km/h [45° S of E], at what angle must the plane fly to compensate for the wind?

## Homework Equations

Trig (sin, cos, tan) *no sin law*

V =d/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

730 km/h ÷ 92 km/h = 7.93 km/h

45/7.93= 5.67 ° [N of E]

* The answer for this question is 5.1° [N of E] and must be solved using resultant triangles, components and trig (no sin law). However, I am completely lost in solving this.
