Four masses are positioned at the corners of a rectangle, as indicated in Figure 12-23 (not to scale).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Figure 12-23 (attachment)

(a) Find the magnitude and direction of the net force acting on the 2.0 kg mass if x = 0.20 m and y = 0.15 m.

(b) How do your answers to part (a) change (if at all) if all sides of the rectangle are doubled in length?

I don't even know where to start on this problem, any help would be greatly appreciated.
