The wording of it confuses me.

**drwls**, Thursday, March 18, 2010 at 10:57amTotal distance travelled is 32 miles. The south component of the displacement is is 32 cos 45 = 22.63 miles. On a map, that is how much the southern coordinate changes.

There is an eastern displacement of the same amount, 32 sin 45 = 22.63 miles.

The hypotenuse, which is the displacement vector magnitude, is 45 miles
