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?
