Let resultant be 'R' that makes an angle of θ with the horizontal X axis. And at a distance of x from point 'O'. Let ∑H and ∑V be the horizontal and vertical component.

H = 150 - 100 cos 45º = 79.29N                                                               ...(i)

V = 50 - 100 sin 45º - 80 = -100.7N         ...(ii)

R = {  H2  + V2}1/2

R = {(79.29)2  + (100.7)2}1/2

R = 128.17N                                                                            .......ANS

Calculation For angle θ

tanθ   =     ∑V/ ∑ H

= -100.71/79.28

θ= -51.78º                                                                              .......ANS

Calculate distance'd'

In accordance to Varignon's theorem, R.d = ∑M

(By taking moment about point 'O')

That is, 128.17 X d = 150 X 3 -50 X 3 + 100 X 3 - 80 X 3

d = 2.808 m                                                                            .......ANS
