**MathMate**, Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 6:18pmThe magnitude of the resultant of two forces are at a maximum when the angle between them is zero, when it equals the sum of the individual magnitudes, i.e.

for forces A and B, the magnitude of the resultant is |R|=|A|+|B|.

In this case, |A|+|B|=14+30=44 < 60, so it is impossible to have a resultant of 60. Please check for typos.
