David leaves the house to go to school. He walks 200 meters west and 125 meters north. How far is he from his starting point? Round to the nearest whole meter.

This  is  just a right triangle problem  where  the legs  are 200 m  and  125 m

 

The distance from his starting point is the hypoyenuse  =

 

√ [ 200^2 + 125^2 ] =  √55625  ≈  236 m
