(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The directions of two forces [tex]\vec{F_{1}}[/tex] and [tex]\vec{F_{2}}[/tex] (with F1 > F2) that are exerted at a point from angle of 150 degrees between them. Find the relations that must exist between the magnitudes of these forces [tex]\vec{F_{1}}[/tex] and [tex]\vec{F_{2}}[/tex] so that the net force has a magnitude equal to that of [tex]\vec{F_{1}}[/tex] .

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\sum\vec{F}=0[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

none so far.

-----------

Need help getting started..

-----------

[tex]\vec{F_{1}}[/tex] = [tex]\vec{F_{1}}[/tex] + [tex]\vec{F_{2}}[/tex] I think this is what the problem is stating, but wouldn't that mean F2 = 0?
