    Three vectors are shown in Fig. 3-41 (A = 66.0, O = 52.0 degrees). Their magnitudes are given in arbitrary units. Determine the sum of the three vectors.

    (a) Give the resultant in terms of components.
    Rx = ?
    Ry = ?

    (b) What is the magnitude of the resultant?

    What is the resultant's angle above the positive x axis?
