**Summary:**Figuring net displacement given the angles and distances of three vectors.

You travel 4.00 miles East, followed by 5.00 miles at 50.0° N of E, followed by 6.00 miles at 20.0° S of W. What is your net displacement? Give the component form (x and y) and the polar form (r and theta).

I understand this will form a triangle based on the directions and distances I just don't understand how to answer in coordinates. I think it has something to do with total displacement based on the x-axis, and then based on the y-axis. I just don't know where to start. Any help is appreciated thanks
