We are not going to do your homework for you. Posting homework under a series of names is even worse, you are deliberating dumping your work here. We will be happy to critique your thinking/and or work.

Have you considered just adding the displacements above?

displacement= (finalx-initialx, finaly-initialy)

That in itself is not an onerous task.
