^{O}with v=<3,4>??

can i let b=<x,y>, then

cos60=(3x+4y)/5sqrt(x

^{2}+y

^{2})

5sqrt(x

^{2}+y

^{2})=3x+4y

Hi hazellaw! Welcome to PF!

(have a square-root: √ and a degree: º )

^{O}with v=<3,4>??

can i let b=<x,y>, then

cos60=(3x+4y)/5sqrt(x^{2}+y^{2})

5sqrt(x^{2}+y^{2})=3x+4y

That'll certainly do it.

But easier would be

i] use <cosθ,sinθ> instead of <x.y>
