A crate is puled to the right with a force of 75.3N and to the left with a force of 126.2N

it is pulled upward with a force of 652.2N and downward with a force of 231.9N

A - what is the net external force in the x direction

B- what is the net external force in the y direction

C - what is the magnitude of the net external force on the crate?

D - what is the direction of the net external force on the crate (measured from the positive x-axis witth counterclockwise positive) answer in units of degrees?

A - 75.3N-126.2N = -50.9N or 50.9N to the left??

B - 652.2N - 231.9N = 420.3N or 420.3N up???

c - the magnitude is the then 420.3N up and 50.9N to the left correct?

D - not sure how to do this part?????
