    \[Cos \theta= B/H\]

    This is how I would do it. cos(ø) = cos(-ø) So the cos of the smaller angle in the clockwise direction is the same as the big angle in the counterclockwise direction. cos = adjacent / hypotenuse adjacent = 4 and hypotenuse you can find through pythagorus. There's probably an easier way...

    so its cos θ = 4/7
