The Attempt at a Solution
I've been looking forever on the internet, in books but I really have no idea on this. I've tried stuff with cos and sin, though...But nothing worked...I know the answer is 37 N @ 57 degrees west of south. This is new material in my class so this is the first time I've tried to work a problem like this. I have no clue what to do!
