A helicopter departs from an airport flying at a speed of 90 miles per hour at a bearing of 250° for 20 minutes before landing on a helipad.

Determine the helipad’s location in relation to the airport. Round to the nearest tenth of a mile. Show all your work and explain your reasoning.

In 20 minutes the helicopter will be    90 m/hr * 1/3 hr = 30 miles from origin

 

the x component will be   30 miles * cos 250

the y component will be   30 miles * sin 250 =........... miles

I'm not sure if I have this right, but would you add 15 to 30 since that was the inital distance that the helicopter flew?

This is a bit confusing to me. I tried drawing it out, but I still don't understand.
