    Answer :

    Distance traveled by Tiny : 8m + 6m + 2m = 16 meters
    Displacement of Tiny : 8m (left) – 6m (right) + 2m (left) = 4 meters to the left

    Explanation :

    Distance : sum of all values of movement given in the question = 8 meters (left) + 6 meters (right) + 2 meters (left)

    Displacement : Shortest distance covered from the starting point = 8 meters (left) + 2 meters (left) – 6 meters

    Sry I could not explain more hope you found it useful
