Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0awesome. 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 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
