Question 5 Part A Only. I tried converting polar form to rectangular form to add the AC voltage sources and converting it back to polar form. I got the angle (10.09 degree) right but not the r-value and I still can't seem to find my mistake. (I use my calculator for polar to rectangular form conversion vise versa)

My working is on this link: https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:51d470e1-906c-42f2-8a7c-aae15008c33d

Answer (5a): 23.568∠10.09 degrees

You just fell (slightly) at the final hurdle: -

You correctly arrived at 33.33 volts but that is peak voltage. The RMS is 23.568 volts i.e. \$\sqrt2\$ lower.
