"A novice golfer on the green takes three strokes to sink the ball. The successive displacements of the ball are d1 = 4.00 m to the north, d2 = 1.90 m northeast, and d3 = 1.10 m at θ = 25.0° west of south (figure below). Starting at the same initial point, an expert golfer could make the hole in what single displacement? "
I can't seem to understand why the answers I'm getting are wrong.
I found the displacement between d2 and d3 to be 1.54919m and used that as the third leg for d1, making R to be 4^2 + 1.54919^2, and got 4.29 as the answer. This was wrong but within 10%, but I don't see
