Problem: You are given a vector in the xy plane that has a magnitude of 88.0 units and a y component of -52.0 units.What are the two possibilities for its x component?Assuming the x component is known to be positive, specify the vector vec{V} which, if you add it to the original one, would give a resultant vector that is 76.0 units long and points entirely in the - x direction.

You are given a vector in the xy plane that has a magnitude of 88.0 units and a y component of -52.0 units.

What are the two possibilities for its x component?

Assuming the x component is known to be positive, specify the vector which, if you add it to the original one, would give a resultant vector that is 76.0 units long and points entirely in the - x direction.
