I am having some trouble doing this vectors question and was hoping for some guidance on how to complete it.

The question is as follows: Using vector components, find the resultant R for the sum of two vectors A and B shown in the diagram.

Seems relatively straightforward.
Can you state the difficulty.

The vertical (y) components of A and B are in the same direction (up) so they add and the resultant is therefore also up.

The horizontal (x) components of A and B are in opposite directions so the larger subtracts the smaller.
