    you need to break it down to x-components and y-components, then use trig to solve the angle. don't forget to use a reference for the angle such as east of north, west of south, etc, etc

    Could you please confirm that the answer is approximately 47.3* T, I am not very confident.

    im pretty sure true bearings go counterclockwise from the x-axis
