Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are two ways to describe vectors. One is with Cartesian coordinates (your normal xy plane); this is the given solution (26, 12). The other way is polar coordinates, when you give a radius (distance from the origin) and a direction (given by an angle). I'll help you find that one.
