If you walk 10 miles east and then 10 miles north, how far away are you from your original starting point?
Answer 14.14 feet
Use the pythagorean theorem, in which 10 will be each leg of the triangle, and then calculate the hypotenuse. 10 squared plus 10 squared equals 200, which has a square root of roughly 14.14.
