# Mountainside Monitoring

3 CO₂ monitors K, L and M are placed on a mountain side

The vector $$\overrightarrow{\text{KL}} = 3\mathbf{i -}6\mathbf{k}$$ and $$\overrightarrow{\text{LM}} = 2\mathbf{i} + 5\mathbf{j} + 4\mathbf{k}$$, relative to a fixed origin.

Show that $$\angle KLM = 66.4°$$ to one decimal place

[7 marks]

Hence find $$\angle LKM$$ and $$\angle LMK$$
