Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering how do you solve for this problem?

Yea, I thought about setting up a free body diagram but didn't didn't know which way to point the vectors.

The problem is this:

The force of on the sails of a sailboat is 390 N north.The water exerts a froce of 180 N east. If the boat (including) has a mass of 270 kg, what are the magintude and direction of its acceleration?

Yep, can someone help me out. Please.
