    Two forces have magnitudes 5N and PN. The resultant force has magnitude 6N and acts at an angle 40 degrees, to the force of magnitude 5N. Find the value of P and the direction in which the force acts.

    I have had a go at this but its not right, the answer. I do not have the answer.

    I am just asking if perhaps someone could draw a diagram of this for me, to help me visualize it please.

    Regards
