groundspeed is relative to the ground.

Draw a vector diagram. Begin with the wind vector. Then draw the airspeed vector beginning at the end of the wind vector. Make it end up so the total vector going from beginning to end of the chain of arrows is pointing straight west. Use trigonometry to solve for the unknown you are looking for.
