If B is added to C = 2.5 i + 3.5 j, the result is a vector in the positive direction of the y axis, with a magnitude equal to that of C. What is the magnitude of B?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have tried 0, which seems to make sense to me, but it is wrong. and I don't know if it means b+c=2.5i+3.5j or if b=? and c=2.5i+3.5j. Also how can a resultant vector = one of its components if the other vector has any value?
