To determine how far the airplane ends up from its starting point, we need to have a schematic vector diagram.

An airplane undergoes the following displacements: First, it flies 66 km in a direction 30° east of north. Next, it flies 49 km due south. Finally, it flies 100 km 30° north of west. Using analytical methods, determine how far the airplane ends up from its starting point. (Must show schematic vector diagram)
