Q. 14.5( 11 Votes )

A man goes 24 m d

Answer :


Since the man goes C to A = 24 m west and then A to B = 10 m north, he is forming a right angle triangle with respect to starting point C.


His distance from the starting point can be calculated by using Pythagoras theorem


(AC)2 = (AB) 2 + (BC)2


(AC)2 = (24)2 + (10)2


(AC)2 = 576 + 100


(AC)2 = 676


AC = 26
