A jogger runs 5.0 km on a straight trail at an angle of 60° south of west. What is the southern component of the run rounded to the nearest tenth of a kilometer?

Without rounding off, the answer is -4.33. Since, the southern component of the run of the jogger should be rounded to the nearest tenth of a kilometer, then the answer is -4.3. The answer is negative because it is going south.
