    c is approximately 44.7 m or 45 m if rounded.

    how does your material expect the form of your answer to be?

    It doesn't really say. It wants the distance in meters, but it also asks for the degrees (although I am not sure the degrees of what or how to get it).

    Well the displacement I mean when I said distance.

    degrees are simple enough to obtain, but how to format it is not known to me

    let the start be 0,0 we end up at -20,40 the inverse tangent of (-4/2) gets us our radians, or degree, depending on the mode of the calculator

    some format in degrees are: n degree west of north

    towit, the degrees would be oriented as the inverse tangent of (2/4)

    I believe that is what it is looking for. I just need to find the correct degrees, which I believe you gave me help with.

    So the degrees would be 27?

    26.6 degrees west of north, yes
