Travis walked 20 yards north from the swing set to the slid. He then went 30 yards east to get a drink of water. From there he ran 40 yards south to play basketball. Finally, he ran 30 yards west to his bike. How far was hisbike from the swingset? I came up with 120 yards is that right?

1. He went 30 yards East and 30 yards West, so they cancel each other out. Collapse the diagram and just consider the N/S travel.

He started out from the swingset to go 20 yards North, and then went 40 yards South, which was parallel to where the bike was.

Do you think you can work it from here?

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
