Vector problem

    edit- nevermind i got it

    okay what i figured so far is that the angle i am looking for is 30 degrees, b/c that bottom angle is 45, so the other angle total should be 45. and then i subtracted 15 and got 30. so i am thinking that the component that is suppose to be tangent would be 2cos30=Ay ...would that be correct?
    and i have no idea how i am suppose to get the perpendicular one. any help would be greatly appreciated!

    so really the tangent would be 2sin30 ?
