A delivery truck travels 20 blocks south, 24 blocks west and 25 blocks north. What is its final displacement from the origin? Assume the blocks are equal length.

Need magnitude of blocks, and direction(counterclockwise from east is positive)

20S+24W+25N=-20N+24W+25N=5N+24W

I will be happy to critique your work from here.
