Calculate the knee joint angle based on the XY coordinates of the hip, knee

and ankle joint centres.

Hip joint(x = 1.0183, y = 0.7959)

Knee joint(x = 1.1223, y = 0.5042)

Ankle joint(x = 1.0539, y = 0.1081)

2. Relevant equations

θjoint = θproximal −θdistal

3. The attempt at a solution

Biomechanics student here.

Not sure how to do this. I'm sure its a simple one just confused how to start. It is supposed to come out to 29.42 deg. Thanks for your help.
