How Far is Ahmad Now From His Starting Point? If
First of all Ahmad goes 20 metres to the north from his place, then he walks 15 metres to his right. Again he turns to the right and moves 20 metres. Immediately turning to the left he walks 25 metres. How far is Ahmad now from his starting point?
- 50 metres
- 40 metres
- 35 metres
- 45 metres
Answer: (2) 40 meters
In figure –
Ahmad goes in north direction = 20 meters
and he turns to right means in east direction = 15 meters
Again he turns to right means in south direction = 20 meters
and he turns to left means in east direction = 25 meters
Thus, he is far from starting point = 15 + 25 = 40 meters
Hence, the answer is 40 meters.
