I cant find an example for this problem in my textbooks anywhere... could someone please help me out with this?

First find the components in the horizontal and vertical directions.

Horizontal: Fx = 9 - 14*cos(65°) or Fx = 3.083

Vertical: Fy = 14*sin(65°) or Fy = 12.688

The resultant has magnitude sqrt(Fx^{2} + Fy^{2}) = 13.058

It has an angle to the horizontal axis of tan^{-1}(Fy/Fx) = 76.34°
