Answer:

25m NE from Origin.

Explanation:

One just uses the Pythagoras Theorem of a right angle triangle.

The distance from origin to the endpoint is the hypotenuse (#x#), so you just square the two values given, which is the base and upright of the triangle, add them together and square root it. That will be your answer.

#15^2# + #20^2# = #x^2#
225 + 400 = #x^2#
625 = #x^2#
#sqrt625# = #x#
25m = #x#

The direction from origin is just the East value and North value combined, thus final answer is 25m NE.

Hope I helped :)
