A girl walks 200 towards East and the she walks 150m towards North. The distance of the girl

from the starting point is

(a) 350m (b) 250m (c) 300m (d) 225m

distance will be (a) 350m

I disagree with both the explanations here. The answer is (a) because the question asks for distance, which is 200m + 150m = 300m.

If the question had been displacement, the answer would have been (b)250m.

THUMBS UP IF IT HELPED U.

The answer is b)250m
Since by pythagora's theorm: 200m^2+150^2=x^2 where X is 250m

Here is the answer to your question.

Thus, the required distance from the starting point is 13 m.
