You start driving north for 15 miles, turn right, and drive east for another 8 miles, then drive south for another 2 miles. At the end of driving, what is your straight line distance from your starting point?

You are currently 13 miles north and 8 miles east from your starting point.

 

Figuring it out using pythagorean theroem...: sqrt(13^2+8^2), answer = sqrt(233)
