(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Instructions for finding a buried treasure include the following: Go 66.0 paces at 256deg, turn to 140deg and walk 125 paces, then travel 100 paces at 169deg. The angles are measured counterclockwise from an axis pointing to the east, the +xdirection. Determine the resultant displacement from the starting point. Enter the distance (without units) and the angle relative to the positive x-axis.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I already figured out the displacement which is 213 paces but i thought the angle could be found using the two components (x and y), 35.4 and -210. Please help because I'm wrong!!
