A boat traveled in a straight line through calm seas until it was 28 kilometers east and 47 kilometers south of its original position. How far did the boat travel, round to the nearest tenth.

Like in a straight line?

 

Using pythog. thereom

 

sqrt(28^2 +47^2) = sqrt(2993) km

 

OR you add 28 to 47 if you wanted to know the distance the boat traveld, not the distance relative to the starting point.
