Distance travelled in the North= (4+4) = 8 km
Distance travelled due west = 3 km
Total distance = (8+3) km = 11km
its wrong.........sorry to say actually north to east if forms a right angle triangle. if we think of a right angle triangle we should remember the pythagoras property. the answer is 5
That will be the displacement then... as 5 is the shortest distance travelled and not the distance
total distance is not 5 km.. sorry to say.. concept is wrong
