Hello! I'm a first time physics student (soon to be anyways, starting this September). For my summer homework I was tasked with learning about vectors. I am really stumped on adding more than 2 vectors. Anyways, the problem is:

An object travels 20 miles easy, 10 miles south and then 15 miles west.

A. Draw a vector diagram

B. Find the objects displacement

I would really appreciate an explanation for this problem!
