*Two cars, a Volkswagen Beetle travels east @ 5.5 m/s and a Ford Mustang traveling @ 75 degrees north of east @ 7 m/s. Both cars start from the same position and t=0.*

a. What is the velocity of the Mustang with respect to the Beetle?

b. What is t when both are 60 m away from each other?

c. What is d after t=5 sec?

I am having a tough time with relative motion. I've read that section a million times. I can solve it by just treating it as a simple vector problem, but the teacher wants using the formula v=v' + V0. So for a do I resolve each vector into its i and j components and add? I'm really confused.
