A person is going for a walk and follows the path shown (the red lines). What is the person's resultant displacement, measured from the starting line?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok, I can solve this using geometry, but I need to knkow how to solve it via physics. The first 2 vectors can be written 100mi+300mj, I just don't know how to write the second two vecotrs since they are not straight along theiandjaxes.

I solved it using geometry before and got 240 m. @ 237 degrees.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
