:surprised Now i got the answer to this problem but i am so confused at this one thing... how is it that the answer is 200N of Eastand 600N of west

the question is

A force vector F1 points due east with a magnitude of 200 newtons and a second force F2 is added to F1. The resultant of the two vectors has a magnitude of 400 newtons and points along the East and west line. Find the magnitude and direction of F2 note that there are 2 answers.

My question is I know the answers 2oo east and 6oo west but why north of east or north of west.
