    A team of surveyors mark off distances represented by vectors of (85m, 55 degrees), (43m,0 degrees)and (37m,345 degrees). Solve for the resultant displacement.

    Component is the horizontal (x) direction = (Magnitude) x (Cos phi )
    Component is the vertical (y) direction = (Magnitude) x (Sin phi )

    a) (85m, 55 degrees)
    Magnitude = 85 m
    phi = 55 degrees
    x component = 48.75 m =85 Cos55
    y component = 69.63 m =85 Sin55

    b) (43m,0 degrees)
    Magnitude = 43 m
    phi = 0 degrees
    x component = 43 m =43 Cos0
    y component = 0 m =43 Sin0

    c) (37m, 345 degrees)
    ...
