Challenge! Ready? Wayne used the diagram to compute the distance from Ferris, to Dunlap, to Butte. How much shorter is the distance directly from Ferris to Butte than the distance Wayne found?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Haha okay, from the diagram it is clear that the distance between Ferris and Bute as computed by Wayne is \(15+20 = 35\tag{1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If we cut straight across the diagonal, the distance can be computed by using pythagoras theorem : dw:1437616087487:dw \[\sqrt{15^2+20^2} = 25\tag{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1difference is \(3525 = 10\), so the direct distance is \(10\) miles shorter compared to the distance computed by Wayne.
