a man walks 8km north and 5km in a direction east of north.find the distance from the starting point

  • math - ,

    8kmN moves (0,8)
    5km NE moves (3.5,3.5)

    add them up to get (3.5,11.5)

    distance is thus √(3.5^2 + 11.5^2) = 12.0

  • math - ,

    This is a pythagorean theorem problem:

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    You have two sides and you are going to solve for c.
