1 Answer
$ \overrightarrow {S}= \overrightarrow{S_1}+\overrightarrow{S_2}+\overrightarrow{S_3}+\overrightarrow{S_4}$
$\qquad=(i) +(-5j) +(2i) +(9j) $
$\qquad= 3i+4j$
$| \overrightarrow {S}|=\sqrt {(3)^2 +(4)^2}= 5 km$
Hence B is the correct answer.

answer
You start from a point and your first move is 5 m at an angle of 53.1$^{\circ}$. Your second move was 6 m along the x-axis and some unknown distance along the y-axis. Your third move was some unknown distance along the x-axis and -3 m along the y-axis. If you ended up at a point 5.39 m from where you started and 21.8$^{\circ}$ below the x-axis, calculate the unknown components of your second ($y_2$) and third ($x_3$) moves .
