## The Attempt at a Solution

**8.0 N (north) + 10.0 N (south) = 2.0 N (south)**

i used the tip-to-tail method to add the vectors

c = ([2.0 N]^2 + [17.0 N]^2 - 2 (2.0 N) (17.0 N) cos45°)1/2

c = 15.6 N

SinA/17.0 N = Sin45°/15.6 N

A = 40°

Net force = 15.6 N (S 40° W)

can someone please verify if my answer is correct! thanks in advance :)
