## Homework Statement

Hi all,

It is a homework problem, but I really don't quite understand the question. It reads-

"3 forces of magnitudes 10N, 20N, and 30N acting on a point are parallel to the sides of an equilateral triangle, taken in order. Find their resultant"

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

What I think is, as the resultant of 3 vectors forming a closed figure is 0, the answer should be 0.But the answer is given as $$10 \sqrt{3}$$. How?

Thanks in advance! (PS- Please add a diagram, if possible)
