Two forces, F⃗ 1 and F⃗ 2, act at a point, as shown in the picture. (Figure 1) F⃗ 1 has a magnitude of 8.20N and is directed at an angle of α = 55.0∘ above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F⃗ 2 has a magnitude of 6.40N and is directed at an angle of β = 53.4∘ below the negative x axis in the third quadrant.
