The displacement vectors A and B, when added together, give the resultant vector R, so that R = A + B. Use the data in the drawing and the fact that phi = 34° to find the magnitude R of the resultant vector and the angle θ that it makes with the +x axis. R = m θ = °

    |dw:1327258762765:dw| \[\begin{align} h&=8\sin(34)\tag{1}\\ x&=8\cos(34)\tag{2}\\ R^2&=x^2+(6-h)^2\tag{3}\\ \theta&=\arctan(\frac{6-h}{x}\tag{4}) \end{align}\]Use (1) and (2) to calculate h and x. Then use these to work out the magnitude or R in (3). Finally use (4) to find \(\theta\). BTW: \(\arctan\) is just the inverse tangent function. Sometimes also written as \(\tan^{-1}\)
