    You have to work out weather path ABC or ADC is shorter. path ABC = AB + BC path ADC= AD + DC you can use Pythagorus's theorem to calculate AB and (DC)

    yeah i know im getting sqrt(40) for A to B and 6 for B to C

    B is the correct answer but i can't get the exact distance from A to B and then from B to C

    sorry i got distracted, you've got AB right and you've got BC right too

    you want the total distance right? do you know the shortest rout?

    from A to B is \(\sqrt{2^2+6^2}=\sqrt{40}\) and from B to C is 6

    so that distance total is\[6+\sqrt{40}\]

    \[\sqrt{40}=\sqrt{4\times10}=\sqrt{2^2\times2\times5}=2\sqrt{2}\sqrt{5}\]
