I am having a lot of trouble with my physics homework and any help would be great.

I thought I maybe had to subtract the wind from what I need to travel, but that didn't get me an answer that made any sense, plus I didn't know what to do with the angle. I looked in the book and couldn't find anything, but the chapter is called Vector Addition, so I am assuming at some point I am supposed to add vectors. Any help with how to solve this would be super helpful, please and thank you.

**The Molko's fly from airport A to airport B. They need to travel 717 km/h, 2.64 degrees West of South. The wind is blowing east at 102 km/h. What speed and direction must the plane travel to get there?**
