Answer:

#v=1,6 " "(unit)/s#
#angle=308,66 ^o#
#"you can find from the triangle of ABC" ( tan A)"#

#"the green vector shows displacement for the object B from"#
#"the perspective of A"#

#AB=sqrt((-1+5)^2+(-8+3)^2#

#AB=sqrt(4^2+(-5)^2)#

#AB=sqrt(16+25)#
#AB=sqrt41#

#AB=6,40 " unit"#

#v=(6,40)/4#

#v=1,6 " "(unit)/s#

#angle=308,66 ^o#
#"you can find from the triangle of ABC" ( tan A)"#
