Two forces, F_1 and F_2, act at a point. F_1 has a magnitude of 9.60 N and is directed at an angle of 61.0 degrees above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F_2_vec has a magnitude of 7.00 N and is directed at an angle of 53.7 degrees below the negative x axis in the third quadrant.

1.) What is the x component F(x) of the resultant force?

2.) What is the y component F(y) of the resultant force?

3.) What is the magnitude F of the resultant force?

I have tried different methods but i think my approach is all wrong(mult. the degrees by the N) . does anyone know how to solve it?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
