a person moves 30m north, then 20m east and then 30(square root of two)m south west . His displacement from the original position is ?.

    Draw 3 vectors from the origin:

    20m @ 0 Deg.(East).
    30m @ 90 Deg.(North).
    30*sqrt2 @ (270-45)Deg.(Southwest).

    X = Hor. = 20 + 30*sqrt2*cos225 = -10m.
    Y = Ver. = 30 + 30*sqrt2*sin225 = 0.

    D = sqrt(X^2+Y^2)
    D = sqrt(100+0) = 10 m.

    NOTE: sqrt = Square root.
