    So here the overall displacement should be zero right its easy !!!! For that to happen the distance ran to the forward should be equal to the backward s distance. So any idea what the answer should be ?

    So in the 1st condition it says the player runs 9m forwards and 0meters to the opposite right. That means it's gonna be 9m forward right? Did u understand that part?

    Zero meters from the starting point means it has to end up in the starting point right? so do u think in the 1st condition it will come back to the starting point ?
