Margaret walks to the store using the path: 0.500 miles West, 0.200 miles North, 0.300 miles East. What is the total displacement (direction and length of the vector that points from her house directly to the store)?

well, net West is .2mi, and N is .2
Looks like length is .2*sqrt2, and the direction is 45deg W of N 
12.366
