A pilot wants to fly directly to the west. The engine pushes the plane at 100 m/s, and there is a crosswind blowing to the south at 30 m/s. Determine the exact angle at which the pilot should head.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Here's what I did:

100^2+30^2= 10900

I then did SqRT of 10900 and got 104

then I did tan negative 1 to find the angle and got 89 degreess

right?
