Find the resultant, in magnitude and direction of a force of 40 N which makes an angle with the + X axis of 38o and a force of 20 N acting along the + X axis. Find the x and y components of the resultant and express them as i and j vectors.

40N at 38° = 31.52i + 25.86j
20N at 0° = 20.00i + 0j
sum = 51.52i + 25.86j
