Two joggers run 8 miles north and then 5 miles west. What is the shortest distance, to the nearest tenth of a mile, they must travel to return to their starting point?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Their moving can be described as right triangle, so 8 miles and 5 miles are two legs and you need to find hypotenuse: c^2=8^2+5^2=64+25=89
