1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Replace the force system by an equivalent resultant force and couple moment at point P. Suppose thatF1 = 455 N and F2 = 700 N . (Figure 1) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I found the solution to the problem. My question is how do I know which direction the components for the force vectors are pointing? I keep messing up the signs for F(x) & F(y). I must have missed something somewhere along the way. Please advise.
