    think about how this could happen. Two forces of 50 and 25 N, resultant force of 25 N...

    That's exactly what I need- a diagram. I have no idea.|dw:1367460386063:dw| This is my best guess

    the resultant for the two vectors is 25 N. The resultant for any two vectors has to be somewhere between\[\left[ V_1-V_2 \right] and [V_1+V_2]\]

    in this case, what is the maximum and minimum sum of these vectors?

    I'm doing trig. I haven't learned that yet, I don't think

    for this problem you don't need any of that.

    find the maximum and minimum length of the resultant.

    Is the dotted line I drew the resultant? And even if it is, I don't see how it can be more than one value if the shape I drew is a parallelogram.

    you are adding two vectors and you don't know the angle between them because that's what you're trying to find.

    Could you draw a diagram for me, please?

    I'm lost. My teacher never used a circle to solve these types of problems.

    I used a circle because you don't know which way the second vector is going relative to the first one.

    I give up. What's 50-25?

    |dw:1367462207710:dw| you are supposed to find that angle

    What happened to 38 degrees and 10 minutes?

    it doesn't matter. there is only one way to get a resultant force of 25 newtons from forces of 50 N and 25 N.

    I will take your word for it.
