Question

Use the graphical technique for adding vectors to find the total displacement of a person who walks the following three paths
(displacements) on a flat field. First, she walks 25.0 m in a direction 49.0º north of east. Then, she walks 23.0 m heading
15.0º north of east. Finally, she turns and walks 32.0 m in a direction 68.0° south of east.
