A man pushing a mop across a floor causes it to undergo two displacements. The first has a magnitude of 156 cm and makes an angle of 116° with the positive x axis. The resultant displacement has a magnitude of 151 cm and is directed at an angle of 30.0° to the positive x axis. Find the magnitude and direction of the second displacement.
