You are on a treasure hunt and your map says "Walk due east for 52 paces, then walk 29.6° north of west for 44 paces, and finally walk due north for 25 paces."
(a) What is the magnitude of the component of your displacement in the direction due north?
b) What is the magnitude of the component of your displacement in the direction due east?
