You walk 50 m to the north, then turn 60° to your right and walk another 45 m. How far are you from where you originally started?

    well if you start 50 m Due South of the North Pole,it makes a very interesting problem. Think on that.

    Now anywhere else,

    result= 50N+ 45sin60 E + 45 cos60 N

    then combine the like directons, and the distance will be given by the distance formula

    distance= sqrt (xN^2 + yE^2) where xN is the north distance, and yE is the east distance

  • physics -

    63 m
