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.

That is a nice diagram! How did you post it? Is there some sort of utility on this site or did you paste or attach an image (if so, how do you do that?)?
