Jim walks 100m due south, 60m due east, and then 20m due north. What is his net

displacement (both magnitude and direction)?

2. Relevant equations

I know how to find the net displacement by the magnitude of the distance...

using the d = sq. rt ( (x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2 )

but i dont know how to express the direction?

PLEASE HELP!!
