An airplance is traveling on a 500km trip. After 150km the pilot notes that the plance is 20km off course. How much should the heading be corrected to then fly straight to the destination? Assume there is no wind during the plane's flight.



It seems simple but I can't solve it.Please help.Thank you.

It appears this image was uploaded to this site:

then linked into the thread.

Good job there.
The diagram clearly brings out what is required to be done.

Where is it that you're having a problem? Have you drawn a diagram?



Given the distances; solve for

I hope that helps.
