1. Question:
A car is moving due W and the wind appears, to the driver, to be coming from a direction N60*W. When he drives due E at the same speed the wind appears to be coming from a direction N30*E. If he now travels due S at the same speed, find the apparent direction of the wind.
See I don't know wtf is going on tbh. I drew some diagrams and deduced some equations which didn't really help.
Any help is appreciated.

N60*W ?????What bearing is this?

It means North then 60 degrees West.

What does this mean as a bearing?

300 degrees bearing I believe.
But I solved this yesterday so try it if you want for fun.

I do not think I can do it, I was just baffled by the notation

m8 which exercise is this ?

It was 1A Q12 or somethinkg but i made a mistake in my doagram hence i thought the solution was wrong but i fixed and it was fone.
I like relative motion though sometimes the situation are abit weird but as soon as my diagram is down it is easy peasy geometry.

just in case here are some notes for M4 written by a trinmo

Barton maths did some for M3 but i duno if they are as good.
