So and this problem, we have a go for who thinks about in two boats. Let's see. We have this distance of 10 meters and another distance off, too 0.5 meters. So their first boot, the ball's goes from here until here and the last one. The balls goes from here, open to the sink. So the problem wants us to find out what was the distance that the ball travel and the displacement. Well, let's see things who, since we already know distance, is just sum up the two errors. So we just need to some ups. That's I just need to some 10 plus 2.5, plus the second arrow off another 2.5 meters. So the total is just a total distance that above travels is just 15 meters. And what was the displacement? Displacement, we know is the Delta X. Delta X is just the final position of the ball, minus their initial position off the ball. The initial position off the ball was the orange of the movement. The orange of the movement was right here, and zero so x zero is just zero, and the final position of the ball is just right here at 10 meters of distance from the origin. So I was just going to be 10 minor zero. So the displacement off the ball is just Dan meters and that's the final answer for this problem.
