Draw this out in a head to tail vector on vector.

one vector 270 at zero degrees (dogA). Next, starting at the end of that vector, a 300N at 60 deg upward (the angle then in the triangle is 120 deg).

First, the length of the other side:

Law of cosines..

R^2=a^2+b^2 -2abcos120

you know a, b find R

Then the angle between the dogA and the resultant.

SinAngle/opposite side=Sin120/R

where the opposite side in this triangle is 300

solve for the angle.
