  • To be perfect in solving problems.

 

Concept of Direction

In our day to day life we make our concept of direction after seeing the position of the sun. In fact, this is truth that sun rises in the East and goes down in the West. Thus, when we stand facing sunrise then our front is called East while our back is called West. At this position our left hand is in the northward and the right hand is in the southward. Let us see the following direction map that will make your concept more clear.

Direction Map:

 

Note:

On paper, North is always on the top while South is always at the bottom.

Concept of Turn

Left turn      =  Anti clockwise turn

Right turn    =    Clockwise turn

Let us understand it through pictorial presentation:-

 

  

                

 

Important Points Regarding Directions:

(1)        If our face is towards North, then after left turn our face will be towards West while after right turn it will be towards East.

(2)        If our face is towards South, then after left turn our face will be towards East and after right turn it will be towards West.

(3)        If our face is towards East, then after left turn our face will be towards North and after right turn it will be towards South.

(4)        If our face is towards West, then after left turn our face will be towards South and after right turn it will be towards North.

(5)        If our face is towards North-West, then after left turn our face will be towards South-West and after right turn it will be towards North-East.

(6)        If our face is towards South-West, then after left turn our face will be towards South-East and after right turn it will be towards North-West.

(7)        If our face is towards South-East, then after left turn our face will be towards North-East and after right turn it will be towards South-West.

(8)        If our face is towards North East, then after left turn our face will be towards North West and after right turn it will be towards South East.

 

Concept of Minimum Distance

Minimum distance between initial and last point

 

\[{{h}^{2}}=\text{ }{{b}^{2}}+{{p}^{2}}\], where  

h = Hypotenuse

b = Base

p = Perpendicular

Remember this important rule is known as ‘Pythagoras Theorem’.

Example 1: Pinki starts moving from a point P towards East. After walking some distance she turns her left. Now, her direction is definitely towards North.

Explanation:   Pictorial presentation explains the truth.

Let us see:

 

Example 2:    Monu starts walking from a point P towards West. After some distance he takes right turn and walks to a point A. Now, his direction from P is definitely towards North-West.

Explanation:   Pictorial presentation explains the truth.

Let us see:

 

N W      =         Northwest

N E       =         North East

S W      =         South West

S E       =         South East

 

  1. Mani starts walking from a certain point towards North and after some distance he takes left turn and starts moving. In which direction is he moving now?

(a) North                                    (b) East

(c) South                                     (d) West

(e) None of these

Answer: (d)

 

Explanation: Option (d) is correct.

Let us see:

 

Clearly, Mani is moving towards West.

Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (d).

 2. Ramesh starts moving towards South from his house P. He walks some distance and then turns his left. Which direction is he looking now?

(a) East                                        (b) west

(c) North                                    (d) south

(e) None of these

Answer: (a)

 

Explanation: Option (a) is correct.

Let us see:

 

Clearly, Ramesh is looking towards East.

Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (a).

 3. Ruchi is driving a car. She drives from her house H towards East and after driving some distance she takes left turn and reaches the market M. In which direction is the market from Ruches house?

(a) North-West                (b) North-East

(c) South-West                (d) South-East

(e) None of these

Answer: (b)

 

Explanation: Option (b) is correct.

Let us see:

 

4. Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (b).

Ramu walks towards North from a certain point P and after reaching a point Q he takes left turn. In which direction is Ramu moving now?

(a) South                       (b) North

(c) West                        (d) East

(e) None of these

Answer: (c)

 

Explanation: Option (c) is correct.

Let us see:

 

Clearly, Ramu is moving towards West.

Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (c).

 5. Tinki's house is just opposite to pinky's house. Tinki goes straight towards North and reaches pinky's house. If pinky has to go Tinki's house, then in which direction should Pinky go?

(a) South                         (b) North

(c) East                                      (d) West

(e) None of these

Answer: (a)

Explanation: Option (a) is correct because Tinky's and Pinky's house are opposite to each other. To reach Pinky's house, Tinki has to go straight towards North. Therefore, clearly, to go Tinki's house Pinky will have to go exactly opposite to North and that direction will be South.

Let us see below:

 

P          =         Pinky's House

T          =         Tinki's House

Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (a).
