1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
3. Cody and Megan were trying to find a new tattoo parlor. They walked 58 m north and 32 m west. What was their resultant displacement?

2. Relevant equations
(32m)^2+(58m)^2=c^2

3. The attempt at a solution
(32m)^2+(58m)^2=c^2
1024+3364=c^2
√ 4388m^2= √c^2
c=66.24 m

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Welcome to PF!
You have calculated the magnitude of the resultant displacement, but now you also need to calculate its direction, using basic trig for a right triangle. Be specific about direction.....what angle does the resultant make with an x or y axis....
