Question

Rain is falling vertically with a speed of 35 m/s. Wind start blowing after some time with a speed of 12 m/s in east to west direction. In which direction should a boy waiting at a bus stop hold his umbrella with the vertical? My doubt is why do we take tan^{-1} (12/35) instead of tan(35/12)
