Tara goes on a camel safari in Africa. She travels 5 km north, then 3 km east and then 1 km north
again. What distance did she cover? What was her displacement?

Expert Answer
1. Distance travelled by Tara is = 5 + 3+ 1= 9 km 
 
 
2. The shortest path between the initial and the final point is known as displacement. 
 
 
By Pythagoras Theorem, 
 
BD2 = CD2 +BC2 
 
BD2 = 62 + 32 = 36 + 9 =45
 
BD = 6.708 km 
 
Thus, displacement of Tara is 6.70 km
