What is another description of the vector using distance and direction.

There are two ways to describe vectors. One is with Cartesian coordinates (your normal x-y plane); this is the given solution (-26, -12). The other way is polar coordinates, when you give a radius (distance from the origin) and a direction (given by an angle). I'll help you find that one.
