i labelled it as 's' for starting
anonymous

The ending point i came up with was 6, 1. So if the starting point was 1, -2, would i subtract the coordinates? Thats were I got lost

cool, so your process is right. let me draw the end position on my thing now.

so we have start and end points right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. Start point was 1,-2 and the end point was 6, 1

awesome. now how many blocks in the y direction (south direction) do we need to reach the same horizontal line as where its starting point was?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have a feeling the answer is 5, -3 unless my mathmatical skills just suck

3 blocks in the y direction?
anonymous
  • anonymous
up or down?
anonymous
  • anonymous
did you go 3blocks up from the end point, or 3 blocks down from the end point?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Down, or south
anonymous
  • anonymous
good or -3 units in the y-direction, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
going up we always take positive steps, and going down we take negative steps.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its like a vertical number line!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct. And 5 units west on the x line or whatever to get back to the starting point. So sense it goes "west" it would be a negative outcome, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well to confirm your thoughts, if i had a number line, and i started at 1, how do you end up at 0. we subtract 1 right? hence we go -1 units. so yes, for this example, we will go -3 units in the y direction and -5 units in the x direction

Wonderful, thank you so much for your help

no problem! try and break the problem down in simple steps so you don't get yourself confused! woodwork
