**Reiny**, Friday, December 16, 2011 at 1:44pmI assume you constructed a parallelogram so that the diagonal is the resultant of the two forces

The obtuse angle would then be 180-35 = 145°

Use the cosine law to find the magnitude |r| of that resultant

|r|^2 = 5.66^2 + 12^2 - 2(12)(5.66)cos 145°

= 287.309

|r| = 16.95

"What is the smallest angle of the triangle", I will assume we are looking at the triangle just dealt with above ...

The smallest angle will be opposite the smallest side, let it be Ø

sinØ/5.66 = sin 145/16.95

sinØ = .19153..

Ø = 11.04°

easy to find the third angle
