How to find final momentum of inelastic collision?
I'm doing an activity for physics and I have to find the final momentum after two items collide in an inelastic collision. I have the two initial momentums and two final momentums, but the sheet is only looking for one final momentum. Do I add the two final momentums to get the final momentum?

yes
just remember momentum is a vector so it has direction

and it should equal the total initial momentum (or your experiment has discovered a new law)!!!
