A girl leaves from her home. She first walks 30 metres in North-west direction and then 30 metres in South-west direction. Next, she walks 30 metres in South-east direction. Finally, she turns towards her house. In which direction is she moving?
The movements of the girl are as shown in Figure (A to B, B to C, C to D, D to A).
Clearly, she is finally moving in the direction DA i.e. North-east.
P, Q, R and S are playing a game of carrom. P, R and S, Q are partners. S is to the right of R who is facing west. Then, Q is facing
As per the given data, R faces towards West. S is to the right of R. So, S is facing towards South. Thus, Q who is the partner of S, will face towards North.
I start from my home and go 2 kms straight. Then, I turns towards my right and go 1 km. I turn again towards my right and go 1 km again. If I am north-west from my house, then in which direction did I go in the beginning?
Clearly, the route is as shown in Figure A. It is given that the person is finally to the north-west of his house. Rotating Figure A 90Â° anticlockwise, we obtain Figure B satisfying the specified conditions. It is evident from Figure B that the direction of walking in the beginning was west.
One morning after sunrise, Reeta and Kavita were talking to each other face to face at Tilak Square. If Kavita's shadow was exactly to the right of Reeta, which direction Kavita was facing?
In morning, sun rises in the east and so any shadow falls towards the west. Now, Kavita's shadow falls to the right of Reeta. Hence, Reeta is facing South and Kavita is facing North.
The post office is to the east of the school while my house is to the south of the school. The market is to the north of the post office. If the distance of the market from the post office is equal to the distance of my house from the school, in which direction is the markedt with respect to my school?
The positions of various places as shown in the diagram.
Clearly, the market is to the north east of school.
After walking 6 km, I turned right and covered a distance of 2 km, then turned left and covered a distance of 10 km. In the end, I was moving towards the north. From which direction did I start my journey?
Clearly, the route is as shown in the adjoining diagram. Thus, the man started his journey from the South and moved northwards.
Laxman went 15 kms to the west from my house, then turned left and walked 20 kms. He then turned East and walked 25 kms and finally turning left covered 20 kms. How far was he from his house?
The movements of Laxman are as shown in Figure. Laxman's distance from his house at A = AE = (BE - BA)
= (CD - BA) = (25 - 15) m = 10 m.
There are four towns P, Q, R and T. Q is to the South-west of P, R is to the east of Q and south-east of P, and T is to the north of R in line with QP. In which direction of P is T located?
Clearly, the arrangement according to the given directions is as shown. So, T lies to the north east of P.
I am facing east. I turn 100° in the clockwise direction and then 145° in the anticlockwise diretion. Which direction am I facing now?
As shown in Figure, the man initially facesw towards east i.e., in the direction OA. On moving 100° clockwise, he faces in the direction OB. On further moving 145° clockwise, he faces in the direction OC. Clearly, OC makes an angle of (145° - 100°) i.e. 45° with OA and as such points in the direction North-east.
