Best answer

use this

tan(angle) = y / x

A

tan(angle)A = 4.80/-1.00 = -4.80

angle A = - 78.2 in 2nd quadrant or 101.8°

tan(angle) B = -3.40 / 3.00 = -48.6 ° in 4th quadrant

so

101.8 + 48.6 = -150.4° or about 150° = angle between A and B

B

(angle) A = arctan(5.00 / 4.00) = 51.3° in 1st quadrant

(angle) B = arctan(5.60 / 12.0) = 25.0° in 1st quadrant

so

51.3 - 25.0 = 26.3° between them
