    Try putting a coordinate system on it, with a or b as one of the axes. Let's say b is the negative x-axis. Then you can write a as the sum of its x- and y-components. 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 x-components (there are 2). There is also only one y-component (that of a). To get c, you'll have to compensate in the opposite direction, so take the opposite values of the x- and y-components. 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 x-components is -5 + -2.5 = -7.5. The only y-component is 2.5√3. (there is a 30-60-90-triangle involved). So to compensate, c should go 5.5 to the right and 2.5√3 down: (lenght is indeed 7!)
