**how to find displacement in vector diagram?**

My homework question states :

"Mr. Hinsley walks north 252 m, east 512 m, south 35.5 m and finally west 256 m. What is the total distance traveled? What is his displacement?"

I got that the total distance = 1096 m

However i am having trouble finding the displacement. i made a vector diagram but don't quite know how to use it to find the displacement.

! combined north and south. i also combined east and west. i came to the conclusion that he ended up at 176.5 m north and 256 m east. i just don't know what to do from here.
