**Two forces applied to car, direction??**

## Homework Statement

Here is my given diagram and problem:

## Homework Equations

I'm stuck on finding the direction. I tried using the equation theta=tan^-1(Ay/Ax), and the answer was incorrect.

## The Attempt at a Solution

As you can see, I have the acceleration and the magnitude of the vector correct. My value for Ay=0.2378 and my value for Ax=0.03487. I know these are the correct values because I had to use them to find the other parts of the question, which are marked correct. This is what I did:

theta=tan^-1(0.2378/0.03487)

=81.7* It was marked incorrect on Webassign.

Where did I go wrong?

Thanks!
