# A person goes 24m

Answer :

Let the person start his journey from a point O.

The figure given above traverses his journey. Length of BO gives his distance from starting point.

It can be seen that ΔAOB is a right angled triangle because the direction axis are always perpendicular to each other.

By applying Pythagoras theorem to ΔAOB we get,

h^{2} = p^{2} + b^{2}

⇒ BO^{2} = 10^{2} + 24^{2}

⇒ BO^{2} = 100 + 576

⇒ BO^{2} = 676

⇒ BO = √676 = 26 m

Thus, he is 26 m away from starting point.
