Do you know how to find the resultant of A and B?

What current knowledge do you have about vectors? Do you know how to find the sum of two vectors (either graphically, or using formulas)? Are you using a textbook, and if so, does it have material about vectors and their addition, etc.? If you do not have a textbook, have you searched on-line for tutorials and similar resources?
