1. 5 in x direction, 12 in y direction
hypotenuse = sqrt (25 +144) = 13 N
angle above x axis = tan^-1(12/5)

5 in x dir and 12 at 40 deg up
x component = 5 + 12 cos 40 = 14.2
y component = 12 sin 40 = 7.71
hypotenuse = sqrt ( 14.2^2 + 7.71^2)
angle above x axis = tan^-1 (7.71/14.2)

last one the same way

2. a. Fr = 5 + 12i = 13N.[67.4o]. = Resultant force.

b. Fr = 5 + 12[40o].
Fr = (5+12*cos40) + (12*sin40)I = 14.2 + 7.71i = 16.2N.[28.5o].

c. Fr = 5 + 12[125o].
Fr = (5+12*cos125) + (12*sin125)I
Fr = -1.88 + 9.83i =
