A person walks in the following pattern: 6.6 km north, then 3.0 km west, and finally 7.0 km south. How far and in what direction would a bird fly in a straight line from the same starting point to the same final point?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I found that the distance would be 3.02 km. My problem is trying to find the angle. I came up with an angle of 7.59 degrees but that was not right. Please, any help would be appreciated.
