**Steve**, Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 11:01amThe final distance from home is the hypotenuse (230m) of a right triangle with legs 162.63m. Thus, he ends up at point (162.63,162.63).

So, the final leg of his trip is the vector from (270,0) to (162.63,162.63). That is, (-107.37,162.63), which is 194.87m in the direction 123.45 degrees (33.45 deg west of north)
