What is your final displacement if you walk 3 blocks east, then 4 blocks north?

7 blocks, northeast

5 blocks, 53degrees N of E

5 blocks, 53degrees E of N

1 block, north

2. Relevant equations

square root of 3^2 + 4^2 = square root of 25 d= 5 blocks

arctan (4/3) = 53 degrees

3. The attempt at a solution

5 blocks. would it be 53 degrees E of N or N of E? and why would it be?

I think it would be 5 blocks E of N because you're walking east then north? could you please explain if that's correct and if it's not then why?
