While exploring a cave, a spelunker starts at the entrance and moves the following distances: 75.0 m north, 250 m east, 210 m at an angle 30.0° north of east, and 150 m south. Find the resultant displacement from the cave entrance.

I know I have to use the formulas Ax = A cos è, Ay = A sin è, A = sq rt((Ax)^2 + (Ay)^2), and è = tan^(-1) (Ay/Ax). But I'm not sure whether I should calculate 125*sin(30) on the calculator because I get a negative number.
