Resultant force

  1. Oct 15, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have Fx = -800sin60 + 600cos45 -450sin75=-703N
    Fy= 800cos60 -450cos75 + 600cos75 = 707.8N
    FR = 997N , but te ans given is FR = 867N , is my ans wrong ? or the given ans wrong ?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    In the statement only the resultant force of F1 + F2 is requested - maybe that's where the difference is coming from.
