have you tried using the formula for finding the angle between two vectors?
solve for theta \[\cos(\theta)=\frac{ u \cdot v}{|u||v|}\]
cos(theta) = 6 * 7 / |-1| |-4| ?

how did you get that?
i just plug in the numbers from the question to the formula you gave me. im sorry, i really dont know how to do this..
it doesn't look like you tried to find the dot product of the two vectors nor the magnitude of each vector dot product: you multiply corresponding components and then add those results: example: \[ \cdot =x_1 y_1 +x_2 y_2\] to find the magnitude, square each component then add those results and take the square root of that sum example: \[||=\sqrt{x^2_1+x^2_2}\]
dot product: 42 + 4 = 46 magnitude: 36 + 1 = 37 = 6.08 ?
\[u \cdot v=<6,-1> \cdot <7,-4>=6(7)+(-1)(-4)=42+4=46 \\ |u|=\sqrt{6^2+(-1)^2}=\sqrt{36+1}=\sqrt{37}\] almost you forgot to take the square root
you still need to find |v|
i took the square root of 36 + 1 and got 6.08 do i find |v| then same way?
well if you mean by what I told you above yes \[||=\sqrt{x_1^2+x^2_2}\] this is not going to change because you have different numbers in your vector...
49 + 16 = 65 square root = 8.06
sqrt(49+16)=sqrt(65) then this will be correct
\[u \cdot v=46 \\ |u|=\sqrt{37} \\ |v|=\sqrt{65}\]
enter this into the formula I gave above and solve for theta
okay, so the formula is cos(theta) = u * v / |u| |v| cos(theta) - u * v / |46| |√37| what would be the values of u and v? ?
you do realize the formula is: \[\cos(\theta)=\frac{ u \cdot v}{|u||v|}\] we already found u dot v in the numerator and we already found ||u| and |v| in denominator
I even summarized these values above
\[u \cdot v=46 \\ |u|=\sqrt{37} \\ |v|=\sqrt{65}\] \[\cos(\theta)=\frac{ u \cdot v}{|u||v|}\] \[\cos(\theta)=\frac{46}{\sqrt{37} \sqrt{65}}\]
cos(theta) = 46 / √37 √65
oh, okay.. i see
last step solve for theta theta is the angle after all
i got 60.96..
maybe you entered something wrong I'm getting this: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=arccos%2846%2F%28sqrt%2837%29*sqrt%2865%29%29%29
i see, so it would be 20.3 degrees
yes but you need to figure out what you are doing in your calculator so you can get that answer by yourself
yeah i know, i found out what i did wrong.
well that's great
thank you so much for your help! you are awesome!
it was no problem
