Tempest, the assumption in the problem is 4 degrees of leeway.

If the problem identifies the leeway as vector (direction and speed), then it
would be easier.

My answer would also be 141 degrees magnetic. But the workbook answer is 115 degrees magnetic.

By the way, the variance is 14 degrees EAST.
