I'm not going to do your homework for you. I've given you all the steps necessary to complete and understand your problem. If you don't understand a specific part of the problem, I'll explain that part to you. The concept of this problem can be tricky to figure out but once you do the calculations are extremely simple.
That is an incorrect answer. Remember that the triangle in quadrant II has a negative x value and the triangle in quadrant IV has a negative y value. This will change your answer when you add them together.
That's weird, my teacher sent me the answer and she said I was correct. It might be my fault for posting the wrong question. I didn't mean from the original direction, I meant original point where the plane leaves. I'm still very lost with this though. I'm pretty sure that after drawing out the distance and directions, I should be left with one triangle and from there use Law of Sines or Law of Cosines...Help me please!

You seem to be on the right track right now. Let me make sure that I am understanding your question correctly. A plane flies for 150mi at a bearing of 128 degrees. Then it turns to a bearing of 301 degrees relative to the initial 0 degree position and flies for 185mi.
