Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Wesley is approximately 25.46 miles far from where he beganStep-by-step explanation:Distance by which the boat is sailed in North = 18 milesDistance by which the boat is sailed east = 18 miles.So, The distance traveled by him is in the form of right angled and to find the distance between finial and initial position, we need to calculate the hypotenuse side.⇒ Hypotenuse² = 18² + 18² = 324 + 324 = 25.46 miles.Hence, Wesley is approximately 25.46 miles far from where he began
