## Study Notes

### Person's Journey

• A person walks 17m west from point B to reach point C.
• Then, they turn left and walk 7m to reach point J.
• From point J, they turn right and walk 15m to reach point X.
• At point X, they turn left and walk 14m to reach point S.
• From point S, they turn left and walk 12m to reach point E.
• At point E, they turn left again and walk 10m to reach point A.

### Continuation of Journey

• From point A, they walk 18m after turning right to reach point V.
• Then, they turn right and walk 13m to reach point H.
• At point H, they turn right again and walk 25m to reach point Y.
• Finally, at point Y, they turn left and walk 5m to reach point R.

### Important Distances and Directions

• The approximate shortest distance between points A and R is to be determined.
• The direction of point J with respect to point V is to be determined.
• If another person walks 10m east from point Y, the shortest distance between the person and point C is to be determined.

### Logic

• Systematic study of principles of valid inference and reasoning
• Involves use of language, symbols, and rules to express and analyze arguments
• Types of logic: • Propositional logic: deals with statements that can be true or false • Predicate logic: deals with statements containing variables and predicates • Syllogistic logic: deals with categorical propositions and syllogisms
• Logical operators: • NOT (negation) • AND (conjunction) • OR (disjunction) • IF-THEN (conditional) • IF-AND-ONLY-IF (biconditional)

### Direction

• Ability to understand and follow directions
• Types of direction: • Spatial direction: understanding left, right, up, down, and other spatial relationships • Temporal direction: understanding before, after, and other temporal relationships
• Importance of direction: • Essential for problem-solving and navigation • Helps in understanding and following instructions • Improves cognitive mapping and spatial awareness

### Distance

• Measurement of amount of space between two or more objects
• Types of distance: • Physical distance: measured in units such as meters, feet, or inches • Temporal distance: measured in units such as seconds, minutes, or hours
• Importance of distance: • Essential for understanding spatial relationships and navigation • Helps in problem-solving and estimation • Improves cognitive mapping and spatial awareness
