    Answer:

    Displacement = 20

    Direction = westward

    Explanation:

    Given that a football coach walks 18 meters westward, then 12 meterseastward, then 28 meters westward, and finally 14 meters

    eastward.

    To calculate the displacement,

    Let eastward = negative

    Westward = positive

    Displacement = 18 – 12 + 28 – 14

    Displacement = 46 – 26

    displacement = 20 metre

    Since the answer is positive, the direction is westward.
