Question
24 out of 25
 

A villager went to meet his uncle in another village situated 5 km away in the North-east direction of his own village. From there he came to meet his father-in-law living in a village situated 4 km in the south of his uncle’s village. How far away and in what direction is he now?

A 3 km in the North
B 3 km in the East
C 4 km in the East
D 4 km in the West
E None of these
Ans. B The villager moves from his village at O to his uncle’s village at A and thereon to his father-in-law’s village to B. Clearly, ∆ OBA is right-angled at B. So, OA2 = OB2 + AB2  OB2 = OA2 – AB2  OB = √(25 – 16) km = (√9) km = 3 km. Thus, B is 3 km to the east of his initial position O.
