    physics displacement problem

    have to add the following two displacement vectors,
    the angles are measured from the x-axis with,
    counterclockwise as the positive.

    Displacement 1: is 3.0 m so 58 degrees
    Displacement 2: is 4.3 m so 10 degrees

    The total displacement vector has a
    Magnitude, find it.
    and also has a direction in degrees that needs to be found.

    anyone who can help me with this please?

    I did a four displacement addition in one of your other posts. The method is identical.
