I've been stuck on this problem for too long and need help. Please explain the answer if possible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F1 has a magnitude of 8.80 n and is directed at an angle of [tex]\alpha[/tex]= 65.0 above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F2 has a magnitude of 6.40 N and is directed at an angle of [tex]\beta[/tex] = 53.3 below the negative x axis in the third quadrant.

What is the x component Fx of the resultant force?

What is the y component Fy of the resultant force?

What is the magnitude F of the resultant force?

What is the angle [tex]\gamma[/tex] that the resultant force forms with the negative x axis? In this problem, assume that positive angles are measured clockwise from the negative x axis.
