Physics

Two men decide to use their cars to pull a
truck stuck in mud. They attach ropes and one pulls with a force of 972 N at an angle of 28 degrees with respect to the direction in which
the truck is headed, while the other car pulls with a force of 1401 N at an angle of 23 degrees with respect to the same direction. What is the net forward force exerted on the truck in the direction it is headed?
Answer in units of N.
