## Homework Statement

Find the resultant for the following directions.

20 degrees east of south for 1/2"

80 degrees South of west for 5"

15 degrees west of north for 1"

35 degrees North of East for 3"

40 degrees South of East for 1"

## Homework Equations

R2 = a2 + b2

## The Attempt at a Solution

i graphed the measurements with each 5" = 1/2" on graph paper. then i connected the tail of the first vector to the head of the end point and measured the resultant but when i calculated it i got 31.55, to calculate this i found the x,y for each vector. vector 1- 4.69,-1.71. vector 2- - and -8.68, -49.24. vector 3- -9.66, 2.59. vector 4- 24.57, 17.21, vector 5- 8.19, -5.74. i added up the totals for each x and y then used the resultant formula to get the resultant to be 31.55. is that correct?
