  1. He starts at 260 and ends up at 175. What does that tell you about resultant displacement?

  3. When we measure displacement, you measure the distance between the Initial Position (260) & the Final Position (175).

    Displacement = Difference between initial position & final position.

    Initial - Final = Displacement

    260 - 175 = 85 m.
