this problem needs alittle understanding about momentum, something i dont understand that much.

A ball of mass 600g is moving 12 m/s[e]. The ball suddenly explodes into three equal mass pieces. One piece heads north at 6m/s, the second piece heads west at 5m/s. Determine the velocity of the third piece.

Can someone plz show the calculations for me plz, thnx alot.
