Homework Help: Physics Homework 2-dimensional motion

  1. Jan 21, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A plane flies 413 km east from city A to city B in 49.0 min and then 814 km south from city B to city C in 1.70 h. For the total trip, what are the (a) magnitude and (b) direction of the plane's displacement, the (c) magnitude and (d) direction of its average velocity, and (e) its average speed? Give your angles as positive or negative values of magnitude less than 180 degrees, measured from the +x direction (east).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't even know where to start :)
