## Question number: 18

### Write in Short

Two people were walking in opposite directions. Both of them walked 6 miles forward then took right and walked 8 miles. How far is each from starting positions?

### Explanation

• Two people are walking in opposite directions. Both of them walked 6 miles forward, then took right and walked 8 miles.
• Let A is the starting point of person 1. Point B is 6m right to the point A and C is 8m right to the point B. So, C is the ending position of person 1.
• Let P is the starting position of person 2. Point Q is 6m right to the point P and R is 8m right to the point Q. So, R is the ending position of person 2.
• Distance between starting and ending position of person 1, i. e. distance AC can be found by Pythagoras theorem.

• Same way, distance between starting and ending position of person 2, i. e. distance PR can be found by Pythagoras theorem.

• Hence, both people are 10 miles away from their starting position.
