Welcome to PF, vihits. As the rules say when you signed up just now, you must show your work up to now on these problems. We do not do your homework for you. We *do* help you when your are stuck on some concept, or making an error that we can spot.

So, can you show your work so far?
Like, what does your diagram look like? What did you choose for the direction of your x-axis?
