Practice (p. 24, #25)
 (a) Two workers are trying to move a heavy crate. One
pushes on the crate with a force A , which has a magnitude
of 445 newtons and is directed due west. The other pushes
with a force B, which has a magnitude of 325 newtons and
is directed due north. What are the magnitude and
direction of the resultant force A+B applied to the crate?
