## Homework Statement

To avoid restricted airspace, a pilot on a VFR cross country flight plans the following 3 legs immediately after takeoff.

Leg A (280 heading 40nm distance)

Leg B (240 heading 30nm distance)

Leg C (200 heading 25nm)

What one heading and distance from takeoff would have taken him to the same position of these 3 legs?

## Homework Equations

Pythagoreum Theorem and sin theta, cos theta, tan theta

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have been struggling drastically to even figure out how to draw these triangles out. I have a quiz on it tomorrow for an introductory college level physics.

The answer comes out to heading 247 degrees and 80 nm but I cannot figure out how to get that answer at all.

Thank you guys so much for all the help. New here and looking forward to it.
