# Angle between two vectors book problem

• B

Should not angle between vector P and Q be 180-θ rather than θ? According to my book it is θ.

If you put them tail to tail you can see that the angle is theta. Actually OB is the vector Q translated so that it has same origin as P.
Another way to look at it is that the projection of Q along P is in the positive direction so the angle should be less than 90 degrees.
All this assumes that the vector Q is from A to C. It does not have an arrow in the drawing.
