Two dogs pull horizontally on ropes attached to a post; the angle between the ropes is 60.5.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If dog A exerts a force of 250 and dog B exerts a force of 330 , find the magnitude of the resultant force.

Find the the angle the resultant force makes with dog A's rope.

-I dont know where to start because i dont know what to do with the 60.5 degrees. should i split it equally between the dogs (30.25 each)? does it matter? or am i doing it wrong?
