Answer:

Displacement = 20

Direction = westward

Explanation:

Given that a football coach walks 18 meters westward, then 12 meterseastward, then 28 meters westward, and finally 14 meters

eastward.

To calculate the displacement,

Let eastward = negative

Westward = positive

Displacement = 18 – 12 + 28 – 14

Displacement = 46 – 26

displacement = 20 metre

Since the answer is positive, the direction is westward.
