hi, all,
run into one geometry problem: I have two 3-D Cartesian systems, A and B. they share the same original. and they have the same scale.
(2,3,3) in B system is the same direction as (118,2090,1000)in A system; then what is the direction in B corresponding to (89,2600,1000) in A?

I know there should a standard formula for this kind of conversion. but I didn't take this class, would anyone recommend any book on this? is there a software doing this work?
