a

x-component

y-component

b

Magnitude

direction is

Explanation:

From the question we are told that

The first  vertical distance is

The  first horizontal distance  is

The  second vertical distance is

Generally the displacement is

x-component

y-component

Generally the helicopters displacement is mathematically evaluated as

The  direction is the angle the displacement of the helicopter makes with the horizontal which is mathematically evaluated as
