    Answer:

    26.6degrees

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    percent grade through north = 10% (opposite)

    percent grade through east = 20% (adjacent)

    Get the direction

    Using the SOH CAH TOA identity

    tan theta = opp/adj

    tan theta = 10/20

    tan theta = 0.5

    theta = arctan (0.5)

    theta = 26.6degrees

    Hence the required angle is 26.6degrees
