  1. Answer:

    156.37°

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We solve this above question, using Cosine rule which is given as:

    Cos C = a² + b² – c²/2ab

    Let the Angle be represented as: x

    Cos x = 310² + 200² – 150²/2 × 310 × 200

    x = arc cos [ 310² + 200² – 150²/2 × 310 × 200]

    x = 23.63°

    The angle, in degrees, that he must turn through to head straight for Island B is given as:

    180° – 23.63°

    = 156.37°
