  3. A is in quadrant one with a length of 44.0 and an angle of 28.
    B is in quadrant two with a length of 26.5 and an angle of 56.
    C is on the y axis facing down with a length of 31.0

  4. changing each vector to x,y components:
    I assume each angle is measured from the x axis, if not, you did not specify, you have to modify this:
    A=44cos28 xbar + 44sin28 ybar
    B=26.5cos(180-56)+26.5sin(180-56)ybar
    C= 0 xbar-31 ybar.

    Sum xbars= sum of those above; sum ybars= sum of those ybars above.
    Resultant= sqrt(sumxbar^2 + sumybar^2)
    angle= arctan(sumybar/sumxbar).

    In vectors, in the future, please note how the angles are measured. It is very standard to measure the angles from y axis (or OOO N), clockwise.
