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

Average Wind Velocity 38km/h [25 degrees N of E]

Helicopter needs to achieve 91km/h [17 degrees W of N]

2. Relevant equations

r=sqrt(x^2+y^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

y=38sin25 + 91sin98 = 106.17

x=38cos25 - 91cos98 = 47.1

r= 116.15

answer should be 94km/h
