Vector V1 is 7.59 units long and points along the negative x axis. Vector V2 is 4.34 units long and points at +55.0° to the positive x axis.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) What are the x and y components of each vector?

I got:

V1x = -7.59

V1y = 0

V2x = 2.49

V2y = 3.56

(b) Determine the sum V1 + V2 (magnitude and angle).

I got:

6.22

All of the above is correct when I submitted it, but the angle was wrong. I've tried entering -34.9 and 34.9, but they are all wrong. Any ideas?
