How do I find the direction of the resultant of the three pulls? Enter your answer as the angle counted from +x axis counterclockwise direction.

I have already found the three x components of the three pulls. I have already found the y components of each of the three pulls. And I have already found the magnitude of the resultant of the three pulls. All of my answers to those parts are correct. I just dont understand what I am supposed to do to find the direction of the resultant of the three pulls. Please help!
