    Are the components for F3 correct?

    Ok, well how i was taught to do vectors was to use right triangle trig. Do you have a background in using i and j form? (which are also known as unit vectors)

    not at all.just i know that i for x axis and j for y axis.

    and that is all you need to know. are you familiar with the cartesian coordinate system? and how you write a point (x,y)?

    it is like this? Ri=58 cos 30 degree+50 cos 135 degree+45 sod 112.3 degree + 40 cos 112.7 degree? it's for the i component..

    are you looking for the i and j of the entire system? or each vector on its own? because that equation you just posted would be for the entire system, and it still would not be correct

    no,each vector.

    since you are confused, the easiest vector to solve is for F4. F4 is moving in the positive x direction with a force of 40kN, think about this not so much as a force, but just as a point. And there is no pull in the y direction. so the force will will have a vector notation of 40i+0j

    next lets take on F1. |dw:1365392293558:dw| remember SOH-CAH-TOA sin(30)=y/58 sin(30)*58=y 29=y cos(30)=x/58 cos(30)*58=x x=50.23 so the vector notation for F2= 50.23i + 29j

    Ok,i get it.but is there a mistake?this is for f1 right?

    this is for F1, i dont believe there is a mistake, but i am human haha, what is the mistake that you are noticing?

    I solved for the vector in the first quadrant with the f value of 58kN. I'm not sure if you labeled them wrong or something, but that is the vector is solved for

    ok no problem! i just dont want to confuse you more! do you need more help? Just remember that when a vector is facing a negative direction, that part of the form will be negative i.e. F2, the form will take -i+j
