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

Consider a map oriented so that the x axis runs east*west (with east being the “positive” direction), and y runs north*south (with north “positive”). A person drives 47 km to the west, then turns and drives 156 km towards the south.

Find x and y components

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to solve this, I having been trying for 3 hours! I am not sure how to start.

Thanks!
