Each tick marks 60 units.

 

Samantha traveled two ticks to the right.

2 * 60 units = 120 units

 

Ryu traveled 8 ticks to the left.

(Negative values represent the distance traveled west, in this case to the left.)

-8 * 60 units = -480 units

 

Now there are two ways you can find the distance between them.

1) You can subtract their positions.

120 - (-480) = 120 + 480 = 600 units

 

2) Draw a picture.

As you can see from drawing the picture, the distance between them can be found by doing 480 + 120 = 600 units
