Explanation:Distance is how far something goes and Displacement is how far it is from 0 or from the starting point. Additionally, displacement is a vector so it has a direction, in this case, left or right. To make this shorter let’s just find displacement. So you’re at 0 and you go 3 units to the right and so you’re at positive 3 on the line. Next, you move 4 units to the left so now you’re at -1. Finally, you move 6 units to the right and now you’re at postive 5. Now you’re +5 units away from 0 and so +5 is your displacement (5 units to the right is also correct)

Answer: +5 units or 5 units to the right (as long as it has a sign or a direction it’s correct)

5

+5 units or 5 units to the right
