a person walks 80.0 paces E(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

50.0 paces 70.0 degrees N of E

18 paces N

40 paces W

I made a chart

NS EW these are directions

0 +80

+47 +17.1 got this by using 50*sin70 and 50* cos 70

+18 0

0 -40

sum is

65 57.1

I redrew my vector digram

to find D (distance)

d^2 = 65^2 +57.1^2

d = 86.5 paces

tan-1 (65/57.1)

48.7 degrees

So the answer i got was 86.5 paces @ 48.7 degrees N of E

is that right?
