A baby crawls 8 feet towards the west and then 8 feet towards the north. It then moves 14 feet towards the east. How far and in which direction is the baby from the starting point?

A baby crawls 8 feet towards and turns towards north.

Finally, he turns 14 feet towards east

From the triangle, Pythagoras theorem

82 + 62 = x2

x2 = 64 + 36 = 100

x = √100 = 10

Therefore, the distance between the starting point and ending point is 10 m.
