Hi there!

1)

I am going to assume the that % sign implies degrees and = is meant to be a minus sign. So basically, v = 8(cos135°i - sin135°j)

Magnitude: ||v|| = √((8cos135°)^2 - (8sin135°)^2) = √64 = 8

Direction: arctan (-sin 135/cos 135) = 45° in a clockwise direction from the x - axis.

2)

Magnitude: √((-4)^2 + (-7)^2) = √65 = 8.06

Direction: arctan (-7/-4) = 60.3° in a clockwise direction from the x - axis.

3)

Magnitude: √((12)^2 + (15)^2) = √369 = 19.2

Direction: arctan (15/12) = 51.3° in an anticlockwise direction from the x - axis.

question 1 was : v= 8(cos 135%i + sin 135% j)
