A = 71[180o]. B = 71[270o].

a. A+B=(71*cos180+71*cos270)+i(71*sin180+71*sin270)
A+B = (-71+0) + i(0-71)
A+B = -71 - i71 = -100.4]45o] or
100.4[45o+180o] = 100.4[225o].
Since the resultant is in Q3, 45o is the
reference angle.

b. A-B=(71*cos180-71*cos270)-i(71sin180-71sin270)
A-B = (-71-0) + i(0-(-71))
A-B = -71 + i71 = -100.4[-45o] or
100.4[-45+180] = 100.4[135o].
