A hiker starts at his camp and moves the following distances while exploring his surroundings: 70.0m north, 2.75 x 10^2m east, 130m at an angle 30.0 degrees north of east, and 1.50 x 10^2m south.
a.) find his resultant displacement from camp. (take east as the positive x-direction and north as the positive y-direction)

b.) would changes in the order in which the hiker makes the given displacements alter his final position?
