|dw:1328760497152:dw| if you consider going east a positive number and going west a negative, the total distance moved horizontally is 3. and he first went north 5 miles and then again later on another 2 miles, so in total 7 miles north. giving you the resulting triangle. the rest is just pythagorean theorem. cheers.
