Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i am a cambridge student studying in the first year of O levels. Though relative velocity isn't in my syllabus, ihave inerest in gaining knowledge about it. I studied the topic, but was unable to do some of the exercise questions. One question which i foind difficult is as follows:-

A plane flis in a straight line from A to B, where AB=580 km & the bearing of B from A is N 50(degrees)E. The speed of the plane in still air is 300km/h. Given that the wind is blowing from the direction N 40(degrees)W and that the flight takes 2 hours, calculate the speed of the wind and the course that should be set for the return journey, if the velocity of the wind remains unchanged.

Please help me out to find the solution
