You can put this solution on YOUR website! A boat moving 12 miles per hour north is being blown off course by a 9-mile per hour wind blowing west at what angle is the boat being moved off course.
This can be represented by a rectangle 12 by 9 with the hypotenuse representing
the effective course of the boat
The angle (A) of the course to north can be found by finding the tangent:
A = 36.87 degrees off course
