\Problem A ship moves along the equator to the east with velocity $v_0 = 30$ km/hour. The southeastern wind blows at an angle $\phi = 60^{\circ}$ to the equator with velocity $v = 15$ km/hour. Find the wind velocity $v'$ relative to the ship and the angle $\phi'$ between the equator and the wind direction in the reference frame fixed to the ship.

    \draw[->](0,0) -- (-1,1) ;
    \draw[->](-0.2,1) -- (-1,1) ;

Now after compiling this,
