tan(theta)=11/193 so theta=tan^-1(11/193)

What have you got for theta?

You seem to have worked out what tan theta is, do tan inverse of both sides.

please you have to do this computation: \[\huge \arctan \left( {0.056994818} \right)\]

or, using a different, and equivalent notation: \[\huge {\tan ^{ - 1}}\left( {0.056994818} \right)\]
