Try putting a coordinate system on it, with a or b as one of the axes. Let's say b is the negative xaxis. Then you can write a as the sum of its x and ycomponents. I will make a drawing to explain...

Here it is: (try to get the lengths of a_x and a_y, the x and y components of a.

Once you have these values, you can add up all the xcomponents (there are 2). There is also only one ycomponent (that of a). To get c, you'll have to compensate in the opposite direction, so take the opposite values of the x and ycomponents. Hope this is clear enough ;)

cool how did you draw that? tks a lot, in your way that I'll get c=5.5, is it? but the answer is 7, am I misunderstanding or? sorry for being confused ,still your pic is very clear

I used Geogebra. Look it up at geogebra.org (it's free).

Here's another drawing. The sum of the xcomponents is 5 + 2.5 = 7.5. The only ycomponent is 2.5√3. (there is a 306090triangle involved). So to compensate, c should go 5.5 to the right and 2.5√3 down: (lenght is indeed 7!)
