In Cartesian coordinates
D={&rho;1 cos&phi;;&rho;1 sin&phi;} = {30*cos50;30*sin50} = {13.3;23}.
F={&rho;2 cos&phi;;&rho;2 sin&phi;} = {45*cos150;45*sin150} = {-39;22.5}.
D+F = {13.3-39;23+45.5} = {-25.7;45.5}.

The magnitude of vector is
M = &radic;(-25.72 +22.52) = 52.26 cm.
The same you can get depicting D as vector that originates at {0;0}, has length of 30 cm, angle between positive x direction is 50; and depicting F as vector that originates at {0;0}, has length of 45 cm, angle between positive x direction is 150
