Find the Vector Sum

Three vectors have the same magnitude of 14 units. They make angles of t, 2t, and 3t with respect to the x axis, where t = 20 degrees. What is their vector sum?

Solution Preview

We can express these three vectors as (vcos(t),vsin(t))
(vcos(2t),vsin(2t)) and ...

Solution Summary

This solution illustrates how to solve for the given three vectors by expressing them in the form (vcos(t),vsin(t)). This solution is very clear and easy to follow.
