(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Vector A points in the negative direction. Vector B points at an angle of 35.0 above the positive axis. Vector C has a magnitude of 16 and points in a direction 44.0 below the positive axis.

Given that A+B+C=0 , find the magnitudes of A and B .

2. Relevant equations

A_{x}cos θ

A_{y}sin θ

3. The attempt at a solution

I think I have the picture of the triangle graphed out, but since there are no 90 degree angles, how do I use the relevant equations to find the magnitudes?
