(a) Sketch the vector sum C = A + B and the vector subtraction D = A - B.

(b) Find analytical solutions for C and D first in terms of unit vectors and then in terms of polar coordinates, with angles measured with respect to the positive x axis.

I just can't figure out what the degree should be for the D vector polar coordinate

angle of D= arctan 9

A-B = -i+9j

just draw a triangle with hypotenuse from (0,0) to (-1,9)

tanθ = 9/-1

θ = 180+83.66° = 263.66° or -96.34°

180-83.66 = 96.34°
