A roller coaster moves 200 ft horizontally and then rises 135 ft at an angle of 30.0°above the horizontal. Next, it travels 135 ft at an angle of 40.0° below the horizontal.Use the graphical technique to find the roller coaster's displacement from its startingpoint at the end of this movement. (fHint. To soive this problem, use a protractor andruler. See your notes for details.)

I am not familiar with using protractors. So idk how to draw the diagram as well as what formulas to use. Thank you.

A roller coaster moves 200 ft horizontally and then rises 135 ft at an angle of 30.0°
above the horizontal. Next, it travels 135 ft at an angle of 40.0° below the horizontal.
Use the graphical technique to find the roller coaster's displacement from its starting
point at the end of this movement. (fHint. To soive this problem, use a protractor and
ruler. See your notes for details.)
