Soccer player #1 is 8.6 m from the goal. If she kicks the ball directly into the net, the ball has a displacement labeled A. If, on the other hand, she first kicks it to player #2, who then kicks it into the net, the ball under goes two successive displacements, Ay and Ax. What are the magnitudes and directions of Ax and Ay?

There are many possibilities, unless a figure limiting the options goes with this question.

The vector displacements Ax and Ay must add up to A, which is a vector 8.6 m long, aimed at the net (assuming it goes in).

The width of the goal (24 feet) should be considered. There are many directions that can result in a score.
