[REVISED]My apology for forgetting to post the question..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hello, I have a problem to solve this question. I am sure that I have done a mistake somewhere since it is impossible to solve: 246.25 sin x - 676.58 cos x = -27768.42 (last line)

Question:

Use Cartesian vector method to solve all the problems. If you use any other method, you will receive zero.

A pilot wishes to fly form city A to city B, a distance of 720 km on a bearing of 070 degree. The speed of the plane is 700 km/h. An 60 km/h wind is blowing on a bearing of 110 degree. What heading should the pilot take to reach his or her destination? How long will the trip take?

This is my work:
