  2. I don't know where theta 1 and theta 2 are, but have you considered drawing the figure, then using the law of sines?

  3. theta one goes with A and theta two goes with B. I know I'm supposed to use |A+B| =sqrt[ (A+B)x^2 + (A+B)y^2 ], but I am having troubles on which numbers I have to plug in for each value.

  4. assuming the θ values are with respect to the positive x-axis, then

    A = 4.8 cos44.9 i + 4.8 sin 44.9 j = 3.40i + 3.39j
    B = -7.22i + 4.85j

    now just add 'em up and take ||

  6. (A+B)x = -3.82
    (A+B)y = 8.24

    14.6 + 67.9 = 82.5
    so
    9.08
