A pushes with force of 300 N at 25 degrees. B pushes with force of 275 N at 160 degrees. C pushes with force of 325 N at 300 degrees. Find resultant force.

Here is a general solution:

Resultant= 300Cos25i + 300Sin25j+275Cos160i+275Sin160j+ 325Cos300i + 325Sin300j

where i is the axis angles are measured from.

Do the math above, then resultant force is the remainder.

F1 = 300 N @ 25 deg., F2 = 275 N @ 160

deg, F3 = 325 N @ 300 deg.

X = hor.=300cos25+275cos160+325cos300,

X = hor.= 271.9 + (- 258.4) + 162.5,

X = hor.= 176 N.

Y=ver.=300sin25 + 275sin160+ 325sin300

Y = ver. = 126.8 + 94.1 + (-281.5),

Y = ver. = -60.6 N.

tanA = Y/X = -60.6 / 176 = -0.3443,

A = -19.0 deg. = 341 deg. CCW.

R = X / cos341 = 176 / cos341 = 186.1 N @ 341 deg. = Resultant.
