After reaching the place, he turns 1350 clockwise and enters his office. What is the displacement between Raju’s house and his office and in which direction Raju’s office is facing?


Correct Answer : d ) \(5\sqrt{5}\) km and North- West facing

Explanation :

Depicting the given information in the figure we get,

In the triangle HAO

Using Pythagoras theorem,

HO2 = HA2 + OA2

HO =\( \sqrt{100+25}\)

HO =\(5\sqrt{5} \) km

Thus, shortest distance between Home and office is \(5\sqrt{5} \) km and the office North-West facing.

Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
