Perform the following using addition using phasors (a) V = 40sin2t + 60cos(3t45 degree) How do I solve it if the angular frequency is difference? The youtube video teaches only if the angular frequency is the same For example , this link

You can't really apply phasors to sinusoids of different frequencies. Their phase difference is time varying. are you sure that the second frequency shouldn't be $2t  45^\circ ?$
