You could use the formula:\[\cos \theta=\frac{ \vec u \cdot \vec v}{ |\vec u||\vec v| }\]assuming you are familiar with the dot product of vectors.

im just learning it so im still so comfused
i'll try converting it to a different file, all it is is a graph of the vectors and a dot product. It just looks shinier.

okk hm so
so which of these would the answer be ? -8.3° 1.7° 3.3° 13.3°
If you calculate cos theta, you get: \[\cos \theta=\frac{ 8 \cdot 9 + 7 \cdot 7 }{ \sqrt{8^2+7^2}\sqrt{9^2+7^2} }=\frac{ 72+49 }{\sqrt{113}\sqrt{130} }=\frac{ 121 }{ \sqrt{113} \sqrt{130}}\approx 0.99833\]Now take the inverse cosine (cos^-1 on your calculator) to see the answer.
