    Two vectors lie in the xy-plane. Vector 1 has a magnitude of 3.00 m and makes an angle with the x-axis of 32.0 degrees when measured counterclockwise from the +x-direction. Vector 2 has a magnitude of 6.00 m and makes an angle of 145 degrees when measured counterclockwise from the +x-direction. Find the magnitude and angle with respect to the +x-axis of the sum of these two vectors.
