Find the angle between the vectors <2,-4> and <-6,-1>. Round to the nearest whole degree.

Do i use the dot product to fnd the angle? And my classmate got 107 degrees as an answer and I wanted to see if he was correct or not, thanks!

Yes, you should have a component form and a trigonometric form for the dot product which will allow you to solve for the angle. To the nearest degree, your classmate is correct.

Thanks! Im using the formula right now, cos theta = a*b/|a|*|b|
