A girl delivering newspapers cover her route by traveling 2 blocks west, 4 blocks north, then 9 blocks east.
a) What is her resultant displacement?

b) What is her direction? Use counterclockwise as the positive angular direction from due east, between the limites of -180 degrees and 180 degrees.

c)What is the total distance she travels?

I really need this answer please

I'll tell you that you will need to find the hypotenuse of a triangle.
If you draw it out, you'll be able to see the triangle. (You'll have to subtract something to see it.)
