B+C, A+B, A+C

Work Step by Step

We can find the x-component of each vector: $A_x = 4$ $B_x = -1$ $C_x = 1$ We can find the x-component of each vector sum: $A+B$: The x-component is 4-1 which is 3 $B+C$: The x-component is -1+1 which is 0 $A+C$: The x-component is 4+1 which is 5 We can rank the vector sums in order of increasing x-components: B+C, A+B, A+C
