A quarterback takes the ball from the line of scrimmage, runs backward for 6.7 yards, then sideways parallel to the line of scrimmage for 8 yards. At this point, he throws a 27.2-yard forward pass straight down field perpendicular to the line of scrimmage. What is the magnitude (in yards) of the football's resultant displacement?
