That is incorrect. The distance travelled north cancels out the distance travelled south. Therefore - he only travels three blocks east.

False


Ralph travels four blocks north then two east then three south and finally two west How many blocks is Ralph from his starting place?

Ralph is one block north of his starting place, although he walked eleven blocks to get there. The Coordinate SolutionIf you consider the starting point at (0,0) and movement north /east as positive, and south / west as negative, you create the following movement. (0,0) + (4,0) + (0,2) + (-3, 0) + (0, -2) = (1,0) or 1 block north of the start.

What is displacement of a bike who travels 14 blocks north 3 blocks east 20 blocks south 4 blocks west 6 blocks north and 1 block east?

In order to answer the question you need to assume that the block lengths remain the same if you move North or South, or if you move East or West. Is that a realistic assumption?


A delivery truck travels 14 blocks north 16 east and 26 south what is its final displacement from the origin assuming blocks of equal length?

Using X and Y as the map coordinates, where X is east and west (positive or negative) and Y is north and south (positive and negative), and the point 0,0 as a starting point, you can show the following: * 14 blocks north to 0,14 * 16 blocks east to 16, 14 * 26 blocks south to 16, -12 The final location is 12 blocks south and 16 blocks east of the starting point. If there were a straight diagonal street, the truck would be 20 blocks from the start (square root of 122 and 162), just east of a SE direction.
