**Reiny**, Monday, August 2, 2010 at 9:31amI see a straightforward right-angled triangle TCB

where C is 90°, CT=36 and CB = 53

using the tangent ratios angle T = 55.8°

I will leave it up to you to find the angle using whatever format your course or text book uses.

I would call it a bearing of 124.2°
