1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A blue car with mass mc = 431 kg is moving east with a speed of vc = 19 m/s and collides with a purple truck with mass mt = 1298 kg that is moving south with a speed of vt = 12 m/s . The two collide and lock together after the collision.

2. Relevant equations

What is the angle that the car-truck combination travel after the collision? (give your answer as an angle South of East

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea, something to do with adding the vectors. I just dont know how to incorporate the angle
