Firstly , draw the path 2.3 to east and 4.1 to the north. you’ll get a right - angle triangle . the hypotenuse is the displacement.

to find the distance , use Pythagoras theorem.

let the displacement = c

c ^ 2 = 2.3 ^ 2 + 4.1 ^ 2

c = 4.7 km

then , you need to find the angle.

tan theta = 4.1 / 2.3

theta = 61 degree

i am sorry if my answer was wrong but i hope it helps you and you can understand it : )
