# Struggling with second part of question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Here's the entire question. But I ONLY NEED help with part B. Part A and Part C I know how to do:

Vector A is 3.60 m with an angle of 70 degrees and Vector B is 2.4 m with an angle of 30 degrees downward.

a) Write Vector A and Vector B in terms of the unit i and j (already completed)

b) Use unit vectors express vector C where vector C = 3.00A-4.00B

c) Find the magnitude and direction of Vector C

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Here's the solution for part A.

Vector A= 3.60sin70=3.38
3.60cos70=1.23
so Vector A in terms of i and j= 1.23i + 3.38j

Vector B= 2.4sin30=1.2
2.4cos30=2.1
so vector B in terms of i and j= -1.2i + -2.1j (negative since going down)

For part b, I did trial and error, however when I looked at the answer in the back of the book, it was completely wrong. The answer is 12.01i + 14.94j and the numbers I got is much lower. I cannot do part C without getting part B first. Help!

It says C = 3A - 4B
