The Pac-man game icon moves:

a.3 units down

b. 5 units right

c.8 units up

d. 2 units right

e. 4 units down

f. 7 units left

The total movement in the left-right direction is 5+2 = 7 units right and 7 units left which gives a net movement of 0. In the up-down direction the movement is 3 + 4 units down and 8 units up. This gives a resultant of 1 unit up.

The icon has a resultant movement 1 unit up.
