A map suggests that Atlanta is 728 mi in a direction of 4.80° north of east from Dallas. The same map shows that Chicago is 561 miles in a direction of 20.8° west of north from Atlanta. Modeling the Earth as flat, use this information to find the displacement from Dallas to Chicago.

magnitude _______Miles

2. Relevant equations

R = Sqrt (A^2+B^2 - 2(A)(B)(cos(theta)))

3. The attempt at a solution

I ended up getting 817 as my answer, the site kept saying its within 10% of the correct answer, but I may have rounded wrong. I didn't round until the very last part.
