What are the magnitude and direction of the total displacement for the treasure hunt illustrated in Figure 3-9? Assume each pace is .750 m in length.

Question found in Physics 4th edition James S. Walker.

My question is when finding the components of vector C how do you find the angles and use the cos and sin? Or do you use tan? I honesty was lost because there was no example in the book that covered this particular material. There is no angle that was given or anything like that how can I find the components of C? And also when finding the angle for Vector D i had some troubles such as which numbers do I use?

Components of A = A

Components of B = B

Please guide me through this I am honesty lost in what formulas do I use and where is the angles? D=
