A person moves towards north a distance 20m from point P and reaches at Q. He turns 135 degrees in clockwise direction and goes 40√2m. From here he turns 135 degrees clockwise and goes 25m. How far is he now from his initial position?
(If you could, could you explain with a rough illustration or somethingfor better understanding?)
Thanks!
