Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Displacement is defined to be the change in position of an object. 

Mathematically displacement is the difference between the initial/starting point of an object to the current/final position of the object. Displacement is a vector. This means it has a direction as well as a magnitude and is represented visually as an arrow that points from the initial position to the final position.




Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

what is the total displacement of a trip in which a person travels 5km (s) and then 28km (W)?

From pythogerous theorem, total displacement is 28.442Kms

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

a= 5

b = 28

c = 28.442
