i think it is 0+2kpi
thats no possiable as one of the given solutions..
theres a relationship between cos and dot products, do you recall it?

yes.
then the angle is simple to be found knowing:\[|u||v|cos~\alpha=u \cdot v\]
solve for alpha :)
i remember the formula how do i plug the numbers into the formula?
you know how to do a dot product right? and to find lengths of vectors?
yeah
those are the numbers you need then, what do you get for: u.v and the lengths of u and v ?
38
u = <6, -1>; sqrt(37) v = <7, -4>; sqrt(65) --------------- u.v 42+5 = 49 |u||v| = sqrt(37*65) .... what does 38 mean?
\[\cos~\alpha=\frac{u.v}{|u||v|}\] \[\cos~\alpha=\frac{49}{\sqrt{37*65}}\] \[\alpha=cos^{-1}\frac{49}{\sqrt{37*65}}\]
the 38 came from 42+(-4)
lol ... i do tend to add when i need to multiply when doing that
-1*-4 is +4, and i did a +5 :)
okay thank you i got 20.28?
i got something closer to 10
