80 N and 60 N force act concurrently on a point. find magnitude of the vector sum if the forces pull
-in the same direction
-in opposite direct.
-at right angles to each other

seriously, i don't understand what you are supposed to do

asked by hi,
  1. What does concurent mean? In the same direction?
    What does opposite mean?

    If at right angles, you have to use the pyth theorem.
