1. X = hor = 4 + (-5) = -1N.

Y = ver = 10 + (-6)

R = sqrt(x^2+y^2) = sqrt(1+16) = 4.12

tanA = Y / X = 4 / -1 = -4,
A = -76 deg, CW = 180-76 = 104 deg =
Direction.

3. All angles are measured CCW from the +X-axis.
Fr = 20N[20o] + 30[140o[] + 40[225o] + 10[290o].

X = 20*Cos20 + 30*Cos140 + 40*Cos225 + 10*Cos290 = -29.05 N.
Y = 20*sin20 + 30*sin140 + 40*sin225 + 10*sin290 = -11.56 N.
Fr = sqrt(X^2 + Y^2 = 31.3 N.
TanA = Y/X.
A = 21.7o S. of W. = 201.7o CCW = Direction.
