Question
1 out of 25
 

Kunal walks 10 kilometres towards N orth. From there, he walks 6 kilometres towards South. Then, he walks 3 kilometres towards East. How far and in which direction is he with reference to his starting point?

A 5 kilometres West
B 5 kilometres North-east
C 7 kilometres East
D 7 kilometres West
E None
Ans. B The movements is as shown in figure.

AC = (AB – BC) = (10 – 6) km = 4 km. Clearly, D is to the North-east of A.

So, Kunal’s distance from starting point A = AD = √AC2 + CD2 = √ 42 + 32 = √25 = 5 km. So, it is 5 km to the North-east of his starting point.
