## Homework Statement

A football player runs directly down the field for 35m before turning to the right at an angle of 25 degrees from his original direction and running an additional 15m before getting tackled. What is the magnitude and direction of the runner's total displacement?

**2. The attempt at a solution**

I drew a picture was like supposed that the player runs to north 35m first, and then turn to right, but the question here is which two sides form this 25 degrees angle? the one is 35m as a base, then draw the angle or draw a line that is parallel to x-axis as base, and draw the angle? Because i am not so sure about the pic, so i dont know how to do it. BTW, usually in the question that asks you to tell the direction, it means the angle between the resultant and "what"? i don't know the other side? hope you can give me a hint, thank you.
