Pythagorean theorem

(40(5))2   +  (30(5))2  = distance 2     (NOTE : distance 2 )

pretty sure this quuestion is asking for a rate and not a set distance. "how fast is the straight distance between then changing five minutes later?"

Picking up from guest...

at 5 minutes     y = 40 (5) = 200 meters        x = 30(5) = 150 meters       h = 250   (via pythagorean)

x^2 + y^2 = h^2

2x dx/dt       +   2y dy/dt   = 2h dh/dt

2(150) (30)  +   2(200)(40)   = 2(250) dh/dt

dh/dt = 50 m/sec                                                   (NOT positive !)
