My first trial be wrong. I've gone through and drawn the graph again. This time, I got the resultant to be 265g at 342o, and the equilibrant to be 265g and 162o. But, I checked using compontents and get a different answer. And when I used online vector calculators, I got 3 more different answers. Can someone notify me what I'm doing wrong? Here's a scan of the diagram that I drew...http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r307/...
Answers: Solving this with trig to three decimal places, I bring the point (-88.550, 228.905), which is rather close to your first symbolic solution. This translates to roughly 245g at 339 degrees.
I hope this help as a check on your computations.
