Textbook Problem

A roller coaster moves 2.00 × 10^{2} 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 graphical techniques to find the roller coaster’s displacement from its starting point to the end of this movement.
