(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 0.170 kg puck rests on frictionless ice. Two hockey players strike the puck simultaneously. #1 force is 350. N exerted at 020.0T, and the other #2 force is 600. N exerted at 065.0T. What is the magnitude and direction of the puck's acceleration at the instant that it is struck.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solutionI have resolved the x and y components of the #1 force using trigonometry (x=119.7N and y=328.9N). I also resolved the x and y components of the #2 force using trigonometry (x=543.8N and y=253.6N). What do I do next?
