  1. 1. Using graph paper, draw a 4-inch line from the origin parallel to the positive x-axis.

    2. Draw a 3-inch vertical line from the
    origin parallel to the positive y-axis.

    3. Complete the rectangle with the hor.
    sides 4 inches long and the ver sides 3 inches long.

    4.Draw a diagonal from the origin to the upper right hand corner of the rectangle. This is the resultant.

    5. Measure the length of the resultant;
    it should be approximately 5 inches.
