Just to make sure we are all on the right track, the scale on the graph is 
cm, so the motion was 300 cm West and 60 cm South.

I may have confused things by translating 300 cm to 3 m.  My head doesn't 
normally use cm but I can quickly grasp 3 meters.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
