Henry walked on a flat field 9 meters due north from a tree. He then turned due east and walked 24 feet. He then turned due south and walked 9 meters plus 32 feet. How many feet away from his original starting point is Henry?

You can see from the diagram that Henry is 24 ft east and 32 ft south of his start

using pythag theorem

24^2 + 32 ^2 = d ^2

d = 40 ft from the starting point
