Now timmy sit down
Sam currently has to take a detour route when he drives from his house to work. The detour route takes him 6 miles north, then 8 miles west. The North Carolina DOT is currently constructing a road that will take sam directly to and from work. how many miles will sam save round trip once he is able to take the direct new route?
And this side is 6 miles
If this side is 8 miles
Then we do (8x8) + (6x6) to get 100
He saves 4 miles one way 8 miles round trip
10 miles one way
He drives 14 miles one way with the detour
