## Homework Statement

Find the Magnitude and the direction of the resultant vector obtained by adding displacements of 5.0m W and 5.0m NW

## Homework Equations

I think for these problems, pythagoras' theorem is needed (c^2=a^2+b^2) as well as the basic trigonometric formulae (sin = O/H etc)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've tried methods of representing the vectors as arrows and putting them "head-to-tail" but I'm finding it difficult to represent a vector in the north direction as well as the north-west direction. I'm not entirely sure on the proper way to start attempting this question
