Need MORE help with vectors by tomorrow. :(

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Attached in the picture. C can be moved around in all different directions and can rotate since it is supposed to be R, the other two can only be moved horizontally and vertically.

2. Relevant equations

C = A + B

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried a number of different ways using the tail to tip method. It didn't show me my previous responses like the other problems, so unfortunately I can't show which ones I tried. :(

What are you trying to find? The components of C? What is the problem ?

I'm trying to put A, B, and C in the correct positions to show a vector sum. C = Resultant.

Ah! Ok, A + B = C So, use the tail-to-tip method, that is, the tip of A must be at the tail of B, then the tail of C starts at the tail of A and goes to the tip of B. Can you see why this must be so?
