The easterly and northerly components of a car’s velocity are 24 m/s and 30 m/s, respectively. In what direction and with what speed is the car moving? In other words, what is car’s velocity. Hint: this question requires input from Trigonometry for the right angle triangle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thus, the car was moving with the velocity of 38 m/s [E510N] (or, to the north of due east).

I have no clue with this one ... can someone please help me?..
