Going 500 m towards east first and then 200 m back is same as going 200 m towards west first and then going 500 m back. True or False? Why?



That is true :)

Because  east and west are two opposite directions
so when going 500 m east and then coming 200 m back , we are at 500-200 = 300m east   ......(1)
and in other case
Going 200 m west and then coming 500 back , we are at 200 -500 = 300 m east   ........ (2)

So in both cases, we are 300 m east and hence TRUE
