## Homework Statement

Hello, this is my first time taking physics in college, and I have read the section twice and I this is what I understand. If someone could point me in the right direction, that would be great.

For example:

How do I find the angle for example from Vector a + Vector b.

Would I use the tail to head method and that would give me a reference angle of 90 degrees, and rank accordingly? Or am i missing something here

## Homework Equations

hint1)

The vector resulting from the combination a⃗ +b⃗ is the only vector that lies outside of the first quadrant. The first quadrant is the portion of the xy coordinate axes that lies between the positive x-axis and the positive y axis.

hint2)

You may add the vectors either geometrically or by determining the components of the vectors and adding component-wise. Once you have done the necessary vector additions, you can measure the angles from the positive x-axis counterclockwise to the resultant vectors.
