My dauther has the following question . She is in 4th Grade. Mr. Wong left his house and drove north for 5 blocks, then turned right and drove 6 blocks, then turned south and drove 2 more blocks. Finally, he turned right again and drove one more block to end up at the library. How many blocks east of Mr. Wong’s house is the library?

  • Math -

    all the north-south distances can be ignored.

    right from north is east 6 blocks
    right from south is west 1 block

    so, he ends up 5 blocks east
