Those are certainly some interesting questions.. My first step would be to read this sticky.
If you show us what you have tried and where you are getting stuck, there are many here who can help steer you in the right direction.

My second suggestion is to interact sooner with the forum (especially before exams), as it can easily take more than one day to get useful help.

i drew the triangle but since this is vectores i dont know if i should add the negitive ot vf or just leav it likr that and i really dont know how to write the formulas on this so for me to do that would only take forever

Ok, let's take it one step at a time. You say you have part A to number one. How did you do this? Using some basic trig. Part B can be solved usingthe Phythagorean Theorem. The question did not say which way the water was flowing, so you could assume it was going either way, it would not make a difference as to the angle.

I got a different answer for the angle. Are you familiar with inverse trig functions? What trig funtion: sine, cosine, or tangent can be used to relate the two pieces of information you have for part A? (HINT: You have the opposite leg and the hypotenuse)

yeah but see umm u had to use the pathagriun therom to fin the hypatinous then use the sine law to find theda out of that and sry if i was sso late i had to eat diner

Look at it this way.... [tex]\sin{\theta}=\frac{1.20}{1.85}[/tex] How can you find the angle?
