    Re: distance from home

    He walks 13 kms from home. We want to find direct way, If we cosider it as a triangle according to the triangle rule,
    dist = squareroot((side*side)+(side*side))
    = sqrt(144+25)
    =13.

    Distance from home 13 Km

    Distance = Sqrt(12*12)+(5*5)
    Distance = Sqrt (144+25)
    Distance = Sqrt (169)
    Distance = 13
