To solve this verbal math problem are needed these knowledge from mathematics:

Two vectors given by its magnitudes and by included angle can be added by our vector sum calculator. Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation.
