## Homework Statement

A particle undergoes two displacements. The first has a magnitude of 147 cm and makes an angle of 115 degrees with the positive x axis. The resultant displacement has a magnitude of 188 cm and is directed at an angle of 29.6 degrees to the positive x axis.

a) Find the magnitude of the second displacement.

b) Find the direction of the second displacement (with positive measured counterclockwise from the x axis, between the limits of -180 degrees and 180 degrees).

## Homework Equations

Not entirely sure.

Possibly

147{cos115,sin115}

188{cos29.6,sin29.6}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've done similar problems to this (finding the resultant displacement) but I don't know how to find the second displacement. I tried looking this problem up and couldn't find any help that led to the right answer.
