Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong for this problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two 75 kg hockey players skating at 5.75 m.s collide and stick together. If the angle btween their initial directions was 125 degrees, what is their velocity after the collision?

I used the formula Vf = m1v1/(m1+m2) cos 125 for the x value which is supposed to come out to be 1.23 m/s

and the same formula Vf = m1v1/(m1+m2) sin 125 for the y value which is supposed to come out to be 2.36 m/s.

Thanks !
