"a jet airliner moving initially at 736mph to the east where there is no wind moves into a region where the wind is blowing at 874mph in a direction 25* north of east. what is the new speed of the aircraft with respect to the ground? answer in units of mph."
So..my equation is: sqrt(sum x comps squared + sum y comps squared), which makes:
sqrt((cos 25*874 + 736)^2 + (sin 25*874)^2)
But that's not the right =/
What'd I do wrong?
