A helicopter is flying southeast with a speed of 200 m/s and the wind is blowing northeast with a speed of 60 m/s.

Which direction will the helicopter head now?

I know that u use tangent to solve for the angle. except im unsure whether it should be tan-1(200/60) or tan-1(60/600) and is the direction southeast?
