# C4 Vectors (handwritten) watch

1. How do I know which angle are they looking for?

2. cool handwriting
3. The angle they are looking for is directed out of the vectors BA and OC. Using the vectors AB and OC will initially give the wrong angle. Therefore I think (according to your working) they the answer is 109 degrees (180-71).
4. you need BA and CO. The position vectors have to go in the other direction

Using the pair BA and OC does not help

It's not +- 27, it's just 27. You've found the magnitude of BA and OC, which are by definition positive values.
