You start driving north for 15 miles, turn right, and drive east for another 8 miles. At the end of driving, what is your straight line distance from your starting point?

So we have a triangle with legs 15 and 8.

 

using the pythog. thereom we have

 

152 + 82 = c2

 

So 

 

c^2 = 289

 

c = sqrt(289)

 

If you don't understand anything feel free to ask!
