if its parallel to i-2j then you know its going in the same direction as that, so use i-2j for part a

use tan =0/a to find that angle and add 90 to find the angle it makes with j

For 4a you can essentially treat the resultant force as the vector and then find the angle between it and the vector .

For 4b you split each into their respective components and then form 2 simultaneous equations. I.e. let R be of the form . Hence and . Then you can solve that from there.

For 4c use value for q given to find p. Then find the magnitude of the resultant force. Then use equation F=ma

ok but how do i find R ? apart from the fact like you said which is that it's a scalar multiple I'm not really sure what i can work out

for part a you dont need to, R and i-2j are going in the same direction so they make the same angle with J

I see is that because any scalar multiple will still give the same answer?so tan theta=2/1 got it.
Understood part b
But you might need to do some working out and show me to way for c because although i understand what you're saying i'm not sure how to apply it

Ah so find vector of resultant then find magnitude and use f=ma got it thanks so much hopefully if this comes up on M1 then i can do it xD
