    good point what next? i have no idea we have distance... final distance, time, constant velocity so this means a=0

    soooo i'm done? 600\mathbf{i}+400\mathbf{j} is my final answer? no... pythagoras

    so \sqrt{600^2 +400^2} = 721 m thanks a ton
    Well done :borat:

    It's okay, you worked out the question mostly by yourself. On vectors in M1, they can ask you slightly more tricky things, but you don't need to worry about how to do things as long as you get enough practice on hard questions such that you look at the question and go 'right, this is the diagram I need to draw, this is what information I have been given, this is what the question is asking, this is what I know from C1/C2/GCSE Maths, this is the answer to the question'.

    ok then so will a diagram do the question for me?

    No, but in a lot of mechanics and sometimes other areas, it will help you to visualise things and answer the question.
