    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.

    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.
