1. Vectors and bearings

Please, help me to sketch vectors for this problem:

A plane flies on a heading of 120 degrees at a constant speed of 550 km/h. If the velocity off the wind is 50 km/h on a bearing of 220 degrees, what is the velocity of the plane with respect to the ground?

I don't understand how to draw velocity of the wind
Thank you.

hi

3. Thank you!
But as I understand, the velocity of the plane with respect to the ground is the resultant the sum of 2 vectors (not the difference)...
