Hello!

First, rewrite the equalities as P + Q = R and P + Q = S. We see now that R = S, so `theta_1` is the angle between P and Q, `theta_2` is the angle between P and P + Q.

P + Q is the diagonal of...

Hello!

First, rewrite the equalities as P + Q = R and P + Q = S. We see now that R = S, so `theta_1` is the angle between P and Q, `theta_2` is the angle between P and P + Q.

P + Q is the diagonal of the parallelogram formed by P and Q. Because P and Q have the equal magnitudes, this parallelogram is a rhombus, and its diagonals bisect the angles between the sides.

Thus `theta_2` is a half of `theta_1` , and the ratio is `theta_1` : `theta_2` is **2 : 1**.

If we take into account that the magnitude of P+Q is the same of P and Q, we find that `theta_2=pi/3` and `theta_1=(2 pi)/3.`
