Example 1 : Ravi start with a point to the north and traveled 45 Km. Then he turned toward east and traveled 30 km. Then he turned and traveled 30 km toward south. He stopped again and went toward west 15 km. Then he started travelling and went in south 15 km. Calculate the distance from the starting point.
