## The Attempt at a Solution

I've tried find both xs of the forces using 370cos11=363.20 and 293cos34=242.91 adding them together to get 606.11, then I found the two ys using 370sin11=70.60 and 293sin34=163.84 adding them together to get 234.44. I then added the x^2 and y^2 of the two sums and square rooted them. What am I doing wrong?
