Well we just need to add the 2 vectors, they add up nicely here

Looks like a right triangle doesn't it? *Pythagorea's*

- Aliza29faye

so you just add 200 and 150? or do you do a^2 + b^2 =c^2?

The latter :)
\[\large Resultant = \sqrt{(150)^2 + (200)^2}\]

- Aliza29faye

so then the resultant is the direction or magnitude?

- johnweldon1993

That is the magnitude of the resultant...the direction comes next

- johnweldon1993

Now the direction, I'm not sure how precise they want you to be...idk if they want "north, south, east, west etc..." or the angle...but I'm going to assume just the previous
Well as we can see from my drawing...the resultant looks to be facing SW right?

- Aliza29faye

yep,

- Aliza29faye

my guess would be the angle
