A girl delivering newspapers covers her route by traveling 9.00 blocks west, 4.00 blocks north, and then 3.00 blocks east. (a) What is her resultant displacement? (b) What is the total distance she travels?

2. Relevant equations

(a) displacement (change in X) = Xfinal - Xinitial

3. The attempt at a solution

(a) displacement = 3 blocks - 9 blocks = -6 blocks

(b) distance = 9 blocks + 4 blocks + 3 blocks = 16 blocks

My displacement answer is wrong and I don't what other equation to use
