Three students push a box. Michael pushes with a force of 200 N at 0 degree. Shannon exerts a force of 150 N at 30 degrees, and Adam pushes with 175 N at 145 degrees. What is the magnitude of the net force?

2. Relevant equations

Some trig nothing special

3. The attempt at a solution

X Axis

200+(cos30*150)=329.9N [E]

cos45*175=123.7N [W]

329.9-120=209.9N [E]

Y Axis

sin30*150=75N [N]

sin45*175=123.7 [N]

75+123.7=198.7 [N]

209.9+198.7= 408.6N

I am not sure if i did it right at all...i am self taught to any help is appreciated thanks in advance
