Question

Vikram travels 4 m east, take a right turn and again travels for 3 m. How far is he from the starting point?
 


  1. 3 m

  2. 5 m

  3. 1 m

  4. 7 m


Solution

The correct option is B

5 m



AC is the required distance, which can be found using Pythagoras' theorem as follows:

      AC2=AB2+BC2      AC2=42+32AC2=16+9AC2=25AC=5 m

Thus, Vikram is 5 m away from his starting point.
