Are you able to explain please how the chart calculator tool calculates the angle?

I have used the following anchors:

A1: 2014-02-27 20:00:00 - 138.794
A2: 2014-03-08 00:00:00 - 143.793

A price difference of 4.999 and time difference of 8 days and 4 hours

Yet if I plug those figures into a trigonometry calculator such as http://www.carbidedepot.com/formulas-trigright.asp the resulting angle is quite different.

Is the price and time figure somehow standardised e.g. to pips and minutes (or some other time factor - hours/days?)

Thank you in advance for your explanation.

Best wishes
