The problem is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A motorist drives south at 20.0 m/s for 3.00 min, then turns west and travels at 25.0 m/s for 2.00 min, and finally travels northwest at 30.0 m/s for 1.00 min. For this 6.00-min trip, find (a) the total vector displacement, (b) the average speed, and (c) the average velocity. Let the positive x axis point east.

I need help figuring out the total vector displacement. I just want someone to explain how you find it and let me work it please.

thanks for the help
