A car is driven east for a distance of 48 km, then north for 25 km, and then in a direction 25° east of north for 28 km. Draw the vector diagram and determine the total displacement of the car from its starting point.

whats the magnitude and direction(counterclockwise from east)

2. Relevant equations

A^2=Ax^2 + Ay^2

3. The attempt at a solution

i plugged in 48km for Ax and 25km for Ax and got 82.103km for my answer
