i appreciate the answer...but can you kind of guide me here?

when we do vector addition we add the x values to get the resultant vectors x value and we do the same to find the y value

which in this case was(0.2,7.3)

okay...so the x^ or however you do it is the 0.2

and then you graph the final result from it's origin correct?

and we know that in the 1st quadrant the values for x and y are positive which matches with the values we have found out

yup
