length of B=(36+9)1/2=3(5)1/2
let o be angle made by B with X-axis..........Tano= -2     [Tano=-y/x]

how is it possible.....
here angle makes with x axis but not both x and y axis.... how we use tan(theta) here....
i think formula is given cos(theta) or sin(theta)
depends on coordinate system

							The above ans for the length of B is correct (45^1/2 or 3(5)^1/2)... But for tan(theta) it would be.. Tan(theta) = By/Bx = 3/6 = 1/2... Therefore, theta = tan^-1(1/2)
