State of stress in the x–y plane characterized by

Consider a “two-dimensional” state of stress in the x–y plane characterized by:

σxx = 17.24 σyy = 35.86 τxy = 25.52

Where units are MPa and tension is positive. Find: the magnitude and direction of the principal stresses and illustrate with a sketch
