A coyote chasing a rabbit is moving 8.00 due east at one moment and 8.80 due south 3.80 later. Find the direction of the coyote’s average acceleration during that time (west of due south)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i found Ax = -2.11 and Ay = -2.32. i used the theta = arctan(Ay/Ax) formula and got 47.7 but that isnt the right answer. am i using the wrong formula or am i in the wrong quadrant?
