Ann drove 8 miles east, 4 miles south, 3 miles east, 6 miles north, 7 miles west, and 5 miles south. How many miles, in each of the compass directions, is she now from her starting point?

  • Story Problem -

    East: 8 + 3 = 11

    West: 11 - 7 = 4

    She's 4 miles east of her starting point.

    South: 4 + 5 = 9

    North: 9 - 7 = 2

    She's 2 miles south.
