Try to give some more information. "sin-1 is 59.1" doesn't make sense.

Sorry. I have inverse sine as 59.1, but I need to give it in the form of the positive x-axis? Would I need to take 180-59.1?

Thank you

So you need to find a direction of a vector in your probelme and you have computed that that vector has an angle of 59.1 with something. What is that something, and in wich side of that something is the 59.1 angle.

If 59.1 would be in a clockwise direction away from the negative x-axis your answer would be right.
