So why are you having trouble calculating the resultant force? Did you even try the problem... Next time make an attempt at the solution otherwise you're not going to learn anything.

Jegues,

Of course I attempted it, but I do not understand it. Hence why I am asking for assistance.

Thank you.

Hi Jegues,

I seem to have worked out that, I'm going to check the answers and if it's wrong I'll reply to this thread to see where I've gone wrong.

Thanks!
