 Question 288407: A jet is flying at a speed of 526 miles per hour. The pilot encounters turbulence due to a 50-mile-per-hour wind blowing at an angle of 47°, as shown in the accompanying diagram. Find the resultant speed of the jet, to the nearest tenth of a mile per hour. Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Is the wind a quartering headwind? Or a quartering tailwind? ------------ PS Turbulence is not caused by winds. ------------ I don't see a diagram.
