Vector M = 7.3 m points eastward and vector N = 3.0 m points westward. What is the resultant vector M+N?

Resulting vector is of magnitude 4.3 and is Eastward in direction
They are directly apposing.
Let East be positive
Let West be negative
Let the final vector be v
Then we have v = (East) + (-West)
