A mouse starts at position (-2 m, 0.5 m), relative to a piece of cheese at the origin, and follows the path shown in the x-y graph below. Find the position vector of the mouse at point C and enter your answer in component form.

2. Relevant equations

The co-ordianates of point C are (3 m, -5.4m)

3. The attempt at a solution

Well I can't put a picture of the graph up on here, so if there is any information left out that the graph may contain please let me know.

There are 2 answer slots, one for each component of the answer i guess. In my first attempt I entered 8.84m in the first slot and 38degrees in the second (obtained these from constructing a triangle and using trigonometry), but i was told my units must both be meters. So I put in the co-ordinates of the point itself and that is still wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated
