I have to answer this question in the next few minutes, anyone have ideas on how? A glider lands 26 miles west and 12 miles south from where it took off. The result of the trip can be described by the vector (-26,-12).

The magnitude above is the 29. The direction equation for direction is Θ = arctan(y/x) = arctan (12/26) = 25°.
