Two canoeists start paddling at the same time and head toward a small island in a lake, as shown in the figure . Canoeist 1 paddles with a speed of 1.60 at an angle of 45 north of east. Canoeist 2 starts on the opposite shore of the lake, a distance of 1.5 due east of canoeist 1.
In what direction relative to north must canoeist 2 paddle to reach the island?
