Let the initial point of the farmer be point P

The distance covered by the farmer in 40 s is 4 × 10 = 40 m.

The total time given: 2 min and 20 s = (2 × 60) + 20 = 140 s

Since the farmer moves 40 m in 40 s, therefore in 1 s the farmer covers a distance,

Therefore, the distance covered by the farmer in 140 s is:

140 × 1 m = 140 m.

Thus the number of rotations to cover 140 m along the boundary is:

So, the farmer will be at point R after 140 s.

So the displacement = PR = = 14.1 m
