Using X and Y as the map coordinates, where X is east and west (positive or negative) and Y is north and south (positive and negative), and the point 0,0 as a starting point, you can show the following: * 14 blocks north to 0,14 * 16 blocks east to 16, 14 * 26 blocks south to 16, -12 The final location is 12 blocks south and 16 blocks east of the starting point. If there were a straight diagonal street, the truck would be 20 blocks from the start (square root of 122 and 162), just east of a SE direction.

Q: A delivery truck travels 14 blocks north 16 east and 26 south what is its final displacement from the origin assuming blocks of equal length?

3 blocks east

The answer is....................................... LOL do it yourself, lml no its ................ Me giving you the answer wont help you............. I bet your still waiting or you went back but okay... your still here -________- suits your self Its 2 blocks east!

Assuming you are referring to 16 by 16 feet, 16 sqrd = 256 453/256 = 1.77 blocks.

Assuming they are 8 inch*16 inch blocks, 144 square feet = 144*12*12 square inches. So number of blocks required = 144*12*12/(8*16) = 162

Assuming I'm right and you mean in minecraft, one block equals about one meter (so your character is about two meters high, average adult male height.) Therefore one mile is about 1609 blocks.

If Meg walks 5 blocks south, then turns around and walks 8 blocks back, her displacement is 3 blocks.

5 blocks

That is incorrect. The distance travelled north cancels out the distance travelled south. Therefore - he only travels three blocks east.

The displacement made by the stranger from the origin to the Mini store is 5 blocks north and 3 blocks east. This can be represented by a vector with a magnitude of 5 blocks and a direction of 37 degrees north of east.

17 blocks

Yes, moving 3 blocks east represents a displacement because it indicates a change in position from the starting point. Displacement is a vector quantity that measures the overall change in position regardless of the path taken.

True.

Edward and his family are sightseeing. They walk two blocks north, four blocks west and two blocks south. All together they have walked blocks and have a total displacement magnitude only of 8. 2+4+2=8

3 blocks east

False
