A man goes 35 m due west and then 12 m due north .How far is e from the starting point .

Given, A man goes 35 m due west and 12 m due north. Then, OA = 35 m and AB = 12 m

Let the Man's distance from the standing point is OB.

OAB is a right angled triangle. So, using Pythagoras Theorem, we have,

Thus, Man is 37 m far from the standing point.

we will use the pythagoras thearom 

let the distance be x

x sq=35 sq +12 sq

x sq=1225+144

x sq=1369 

x sq=37 sq

so x = 37
