Anna walks from her house to school each day. If she walks 8 blocks east of her house, then turns and walks 6 blocks south to arrive at school, how far is her school in a direct line from her house?
f. 10 blocks
g. 12 blocks
h. 14 blocks
j. 16 blocks
k. 18 blocks
F: Note that Anna’s route creates a right triangle. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate the answer.
82 + 62 = x2. 64 + 36 = x2. 100 = x2. x = 10.
