While using compass N.E.W.S he stated from house 15 km to north. then 10 km left that is west then 5km left that is south then again10 km to the east.

This last 10 km is equal to 10 kms from north to west meaning thereby that he reached from where he had started.

In this highest value is the dist and direction.

E,W cancel e=10,w=10;e-w=10-10=0.
N,S n=15,s=5;n-s=15-5=10,north direction because north contains the high value compare to south.
