Homework Help: Physics Please Help

Two forces, F1 and F2, act on the 5.00 kg block shown in the drawing. The magnitudes of the forces are F1 = 69.0 N and F2 = 24.5 N. What is the horizontal acceleration (magnitude and direction) of the block? F1 is pointing at the top left corner of the box forming a 65 degree angle with the parallel of the top of the box and the corner, F2 is pointing at the middle of the right side of the box.

2 questions: Do I subtract F1 (29.16) - F2 (24.5) Or do I subract F2 - F1? This would make a difference in a negative sign.

2) How do I determine then if the acceleration direction is right or left?
