A person leaves home, drives 26km due north, then turns onto a second highway and continues in a direction of 30.0 degrees north of east. What is her total displacement?

i've drawn a diagram, and the person's 'path' obviously does not make a right angle triangle. therefore I'm not sure how to calculate displacement for this problem. any hints or pointers greatly appreciated!
