I say the calculation is 75^2+120^2-2(75)(120)cos40

the book says to use cos 45 is this a typo or am I missing something???

- math -
**Reiny**, Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 10:52amI agree with you,

don't see how the angle of 45° can enter the picture.

I can see confusion about their "direction of 40° southeast"

- it could mean E 40° S, or

- it could mean S 40° E to some people.

but even with those interpretations the other angle would be 50°
