When I did this I got a trapazoid shape and I tried to solve it but I got 10.3 and 16.6.How am I supposed to do one like this?

You have three vectors, right? Do you know how to add vectors by adding their components? Just do this to get the final position of the clown. Then you just need to find the magnitude of that vector.

To get you started your second vector is

[tex]

3.5*<cos(55), sin(55)>

[/tex]

Now just figure out what the other two vectors are and just add 'em up. Then use you're good friend, the pythagorean theorem to find the magnitude of this vector. Do you understand?
