$F_{x1} = 58 \cos 30^\circ = 50.23 \, \text{ kN}$

**Rectangular Representation**

${\bf F} = F (\cos \theta_x {\bf i} + \sin \theta_x {\bf j})$

${\bf F_1} = 58 (\cos 30^\circ {\bf i} + \sin 30^\circ {\bf j}) = 50.23 {\bf i} + 29 {\bf j} \, \text{ kN}$

${\bf F_2} = 50 (-\cos 45^\circ {\bf i} + \sin 45^\circ {\bf j}) = -35.36 {\bf i} + 35.36 {\bf j} \, \text{ kN}$

${\bf F_3} = 45 (-\frac{5}{13} {\bf i} - \frac{12}{13} {\bf j}) = -17.31 {\bf i} - 41.54 {\bf j} \, \text{ kN}$

${\bf F_4} = 40 {\bf i} \, \text{ kN}$

From the above vector notations, *F*_{x} is the coefficient of **i** and *F*_{y} is the coefficient of **j**.
