Sketching what info you have will help a lot. You'll usually end up with just a geometry problem. Let me know if you need help with that.

Find the distance from (-5,-3) to (4,4) Distance= Sqrt[(-5-4)^2+(-3-4)^2]=Sqrt(81+49)= Sqrt(130). Without a calculator handy, the square root of 130 will be more than 11 (because 11*11=121) and less than 12 (12*12=144) but a little closer to 11. D. 11.4 miles (on a calculator 11.40175425099138)

see where the distances, where you can use the pythagorean theorem to get the "blue line" or hypotenuse
