Main Question or Discussion Point

How does the parallelogram method work to solve one of two forces with different angles? Or better said, how do you derive the method so that I can get a better understanding of it ?

Draw a diagram and ask about what you specifically don't understand

This isn't an issue of solving "forces". It is an issue of understanding the mathematics of vectors in general and how they add/subtract. So maybe this is more of a mathematics topic than physics.

As phinds has suggested, you need to actually show us sketches and show what you did, rather than ask for a very vague, general question like this.
