Hey everybody I have some trouble with this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

At what latitude is the tangential speed of a point due to the Earth's rotation 200 m/s less than is Daytona Beach FL?

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly don't know where to start. I think I have to do something with measures of triangle angles and lengths of their side. I know I need to give it an honest effort however I don't know where to go. Thank you in advanced.
