Orv walks 312 m due east. He then continues walking along a straight line, but in a different direction, and stops 220 m northeast of his starting point. How far did he walk during the second portion of the trip and in what direction?

What is the magnitude?

What is the direction ___________ ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis

2. Relevant equations

C=squareroot of 312^2+220^2

What equation to use to find direction??

3. The attempt at a solution

C= Magnitude= 381.76 m why is my magnitude wrong?
