You walk 53 m to the north, then turn 60° to your right and walk another 45m. Determine the direction of your displacement vector. Express your answer as an angle relative to east.

    Add the two displacement vectors. This will tell you the magnitude and direction of the resultant.

    If you do not understand how to add vectors, I suggest a review or private tutoring in that subject.
