Question:
How do I calculate the x and y coordinates of a point that is 
at some distance and angle away?


Answer:
The following example shows how to convert a polar coordinate to a
rectangular coordinate:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Angle : Double;
  x : Double;
  y : Double;
  Distance : Double;
  Radians : Double;
 begin
   Distance := 100;
   Angle := 270;
   Radians := Angle * DegToRad;
   x := Round(Distance * Cos(Radians));
   y := Round(Distance * Sin(Radians));
   ShowMessage(FloatToStr(x) + ' ' + FloatToStr(y));
end;
