Bob walks 200m south, walks 400m southwest, walks 200m in a direction 30 degrees east of north.

Use either trig or components to find displacement that will return bob to his starting point by the most direct route.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For this problem, I was able to find components for C, which is (200sin30)i + (200cos30)j,

but how do I find components for B. could somebody show me the steps to getting B components. I can do the rest.
