(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A sailor in a small sailboat sails 2km east, then 3.4 km NE, then an additional distance in an unknown direction. Her final position is 6.68 km directly east of her starting point. Find the magnitude and direction of the third leg of her voyage.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've drawn a diagram, but I honestly don't know where to start to find the third leg of the voyage. This one is really stumping me.

Thanks!
