A walks 10 metres in front and 10 metres to the right. Then every time turning to his left, he walks 5, 15 and 15 metres respectively. How far is he now from his starting point?

5 meters to the left from starting point

10+5=15 m to the front, 15 m in opposite direction, so zero distance to the front
10 m to the right but 15 m to the left bring him back to 5 m to the left finally
