Someone help me]x
have you tried to map this path?
im working on it as we speak
draw a graph with x and y dimensions, with 1 unit intervals
i labelled it as 's' for starting
cool, so your process is right. let me draw the end position on my thing now.
Alright sounds good
so we have start and end points right?
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?
I have a feeling the answer is 5, -3 unless my mathmatical skills just suck
3 blocks in the y direction?
up or down?
did you go 3blocks up from the end point, or 3 blocks down from the end point?
Down, or south
good or -3 units in the y-direction, right?
going up we always take positive steps, and going down we take negative steps.
its like a vertical number line!
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?
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
