**Steve**, Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 3:12pmlet the 175-lb force point in the x direction. Then the 230-lb force acts at an angle θ = 42°.

The two forces form adjacent sides of a parallelogram, with diagonal reaching to

(175+230cos42°,230sin42°) = (346,154)

The angle φ of the diagonal is found using

tan φ = 154/346, so

φ = 24°
