I am pretty rusty with math, but up to this point I have been able to match the calculations required for this an other problems. Having little to no understanding how to calculate the angle for when to begin a departure burn, this is the only text I have found to lay it out so neatly. The problem is my calculations for the solution do not match the text.

Here is my solution which is off by almost a degree. I have reworked the same problem on different calculators on different days and still have arrived at the same number. If anyone can help me understand why my calculation does not match the text I can continue my quest to learn this complicated field. Thank you in advance
