new chapter start
I,ve just started vectors & oblique triangles. Without any instruction thus far, can anyone explain this begining process problem? 6.o cm, 150degrees; 1.8cm, 315 degrees. draw the given vectors &find their sum graphically. magnitude is first, followed by direction as angle in standard position. 2d & it is two problems two answers, I apologize, it was one question. I just started this chapter after trig functions of any angle and this is also my first time on this site. I hope I haven't posted wrong.

Are these vectors in 2D or 3D?

Are these angles taken between each vector and the \$\displaystyle x\$ axis?

New problem, may have stated last one incorectly.
Two problems in one. 3.6cm, 0 degrees; 4.3cm, 90 degrees. draw given vectors and find their sum graphically. Magnitude is given first, followed by direction as an angle in standard position.
