 A small plane flies a distance d1 = 46 km in a direction θ1 = 62o north of east and then flies d2 = 34 km in a direction θ2 = 18o north of east.

What is the magnitude of the net displacement vector of the plane, in units of km?

What is the direction of the net displacement vector of the plane? Express the direction as an angle measured in degrees north of east.
