New question! Please and thank you!

Two tug boats are towing a large boat, of mass 22500 kg, back to shore. Tug boat 1 is pulling with a force of 5500 N at an angle of 35◦ north of the forward motion (similar to Worked Example 2) and tug boat 2 is pulling with a force of 4907.8 N at an angle 40◦ south of the forward motion. If the large boat is being pulled with constant velocity, and there is a resistive force to the motion, then what size is the resistive force?
You need to post an attempt, as per forum rules.

82964.923 N

That is clearly much too large. You seem to have an extra digit in there.

The Original Poster hasn't been heard from since April, and since he deleted the problem statement before "leaving" it is unlikely that he'll be back to continue with this problem. Without a properly formatted head post this thread does not meet our standards. Therefore I am closing this thread.

@meggie10 , if you wish to pursue this problem please start a new thread for it.
