An ant crawls straight from (-4,6) to the origin and then continues straight on to (4,3). How far does it travel?

 

Kinda confused bc they didn't give any unit of measurement but PLEASE give an actual number not an equation.

The distance from (-4, 6) to (0, 0) is sqrt(4^2 + 6^2) = 2sqrt(13).

The distance from (0, 0) to (4, 3) is 5. So the distance traveled was \(5 + 2\sqrt{13}\) units.
