One force of 20 pounds and one force of 15 pounds act on a body atthe same point so that the resultant force is 19 pounds. Find, to the nearest degree, the angle between the two original forces.
What exactly is the resultant force anyway?
My teacher stated that this question can be solved without the use of vectors.
Can someone explain this in detail?
let me ask..........
I have two questions:

What do math textbooks and math test prep books mean by "Not Drawn to Scale."
