Question

Attached is a screenshot of my question regarding vectors. I do know the formula for finding the magnitude of one vector, but I am unsure how to apply that to this question, as in this case the magnitude is being taken of a vector sum.

3.
The components of vectors A and B are given as follows:
Ax 5.1 Bx -2.6
What is the magnitude of vector sum A B
A. 5.1
B. 2.5
C.-9.3
D. 9.6
