Homework Help: Help with finding angle of force below x axis? (statics problem)

  1. Jun 21, 2014 #1
    I got all of the problem correct except I cant seem to get the angle of FR below the x axis! Maybe it's because its 10:30 on a Saturday night and I'm trying to do some statics before going out(lol) that I just cant seem to get it... Please Help!

    Your attempted solution is not at all clear. Try decomposing each of the forces into their components.
