A jet plane leaves city A and is heading toward city at a bearing of 120°, If the distance between the two cities are 2600 KM?
A jet plane leaves city A and is heading toward city at a bearing of 120°, If the distance between the two cities are 2600 KM,
1. How far north and how far west is city A relative to city B. Round the answers to the
2. If the jet is to return directly from city 3 to city A, at what bearing should it travel?
Would number 1 be 4503 km and 2600km? or is it asking me solve for the hypotenuse?

1. A is 1300 km north of B, and A is 2252 km west of B (2600 km * cos(60)). The 2600 IS the hypotenuse.
2. 120 + 180 = 300 degrees.

Draw a diagram
Make a right triangle
Use SOHCAHTOA to find x & y components.

No matter what, the distance north or the distance west will always be less than or equal to the direct distance.
