Hello, adamnn2006!

Did you make a sketch?

Two cars start off at the same point on a straight road facing opposite directions.

Each car drives for six miles, takes a left turn, and drives for eight miles.

How far apart are the two cars?

(a) 2 miles . (b) 11 miles . (c) 14 miles . (d) 20 miles . (e) 26 miles Code:

Using Pythagorus, each car is $\displaystyle \sqrt{6^2+8^2} = 10$ miles from the starting point.

. . Therefore, they are $\displaystyle 20$ miles apart.
