    Been stuck on a tough five marker for about 30 minute leaving me really frustrated, would greatly appreciate any hints.
    -A model plane is being flown from point a to point b which is due west of point a. The wind is blowing with velocity (3i-4j)ms^1. At what speed and on what bearing should the plane fly to reach point b in 5

    The plane's resultant velocity vector will the sum of the wind velocity and its velocity relative to the ground. You want this resultant to point due west.
