question 1b

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I drew a triangle using a scale of 1cm=1N. I drew (at least I think I did) a decent sketch with the help of the protractor and ruler. For the resultant length i Just connected the two ends of the 8N and 6N lengths(which gave me a triangle). I measured the resultant which gave me 5.1cm, which with my scale is 5.1N. But my answers way off. Am i doing it right?
