Basic vector problem

  1. Nov 9, 2012 #1
    A vector A has a magnitude of 41.0 m and points in a direction 20.0° below the positive x axis. A second vector, B, has a magnitude of 70.0 m and points in a direction 44.0° above the positive x axis.

    (b) Using the component method of vector addition, find the magnitude and direction of the vector C(counterclockwise from the positive x-axis)
