Sally starts from home, walks 300 m east and then 500 m south, and arrives at her school.How far, in a straight line, is Sally's school from her home?
Multiple Choice
From your window you can see a high-rise building several blocks away.You check the map and see that the building is 560 m away from you in a straight line, in a direction 30° south of east.However, the roads are all east-west and north-south.If you want to walk from your house to the building, how far in each direction do you have to walk?
Multiple Choice
