My dauther has the following question . She is in 4th Grade. Mr. Wong left his house and drove north for 5 blocks, then turned right and drove 6 blocks, then turned south and drove 2 more blocks. Finally, he turned right again and drove one more block to end up at the library. How many blocks east of Mr. Wong’s house is the library?
all the north-south distances can be ignored.
right from north is east 6 blocks
right from south is west 1 block
so, he ends up 5 blocks east
