Jungle gym problem

  1. Jun 12, 2008 #1
    I am having problems figuring this out. How should I go about this?

    A child starts at one corner of a cubical jungle gym in a playground and climbs up to the diagonally opposite corner. The original corner is the coordinate origin, and the x-, y- and z-axes are oriented along the jungle gym edges. The length of each side is 2m. The child's displacement is?

    Break it down into two smaller and easier problems. And draw yourself a diagram! Solve using Pythagoras a² + b² = c²
