## Homework Statement

A map suggests that Atlanta is d1 = 730 mi in a direction of θ1 = 5.12° north of east from Dallas. The same map shows that Chicago is d2 = 559 miles in a direction of θ2 = 21.0° west of north from Atlanta. Modeling the Earth as flat, use this information to find the displacement from Dallas to Chicago.

## The Attempt at a Solution

i used the vector <65.1466, 727.087> for dallas to atlanta, and used the vector <521.87, 200.328> for atlanta to chicago. I added them together to get vector from dallas to chicago, then used the pythagorean theorem to get the resultant magnitude which was 719.542. The angle i got was 32.33 degrees by using inverse tangent of the dallas to chicago vector, then subtracted the 5.12 degrees to get the angle northeast of dallas. Still saying i have the wrong answer so i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong. please help
