ok i got the displacement is .1125 ft
however i can not find the distance! help!

    For the displacement I got the same answer.

    For the total distance traveled, you have to find the length of the curve.
    This topic is not usually taught in highschool Calculus, what country are you in?

    Here is a link you can use as an example for your problem.
