tow forcess F1=(3.0)in the x direction minus(4.0) in the y direction and F2= (-6.0)in the x direction minus (4.5) in the y direction are applied to a particle. what third force would the the net, or resultant, force on the particle zero?

1. F1(3,-4)
F2(-6,4.5)

Resultant R is the sum of the component, namely R(-3, 0.5). Resultant is the single force equivalent to the vectorial sum of the other two.
If you are looking to have a third force to keep the particle in equilibrium, you would apply an equal and opposite force to the resultant, namely F=F(3,-0.5).

It is not clear from the question if you are asking for the third force that puts the particle in equilibrium, or the resultant of the two.
