    It would help if you'd post the actual problem...

    the bear gave you a hint on the first question
    for more solved examples look at this link
    http://madasmaths.com/archive/maths_...ive_motion.pdf


    the second question is very standard but I do not have the time at present to discuss the solution on line as this is very long.
    Again until somebody helps you look at some suitable solved examples in this link

    This is what I have drawn, I thought that the relative velocity should be directed North? Then I used sine and cosine rules to try and find the bearing but the answer I get isn't correct it should be 8.13 degrees west of North

    the resultant velocity ( velocity with respect to the ground ) has to point north. the other two velocities must be nose-to-tail to produce this.

    the 300 must be pointing slightly anticlockwise from North
