American Streets

A boy lives on the corner of a block at

point X and his girlfriend

lives at corner Y.

One day the boy

decided to walk to his

girlfriend's house

from his own house.

There are many

different routes

he can take.

Investigate the different possible

routes and hence find the shortest route

Solutions

(1) XA = 118 AY = 188

XAY = 306

(2)XA = 48 AB = 52·8

BC = 52·8 CY = 118

XY = 271·6

(3) XA = 48 AB = 120·0

BC = 52·8 CY = 48

XY = 268·8

(4) XA = 48 AB = 189·3

BY = 48 XY = 285·3

(5) XA = 48 AB = 120·0

BY = 118 XY = 286·0

(6) XA = 48 AB = 52·8

BC = 52·8 CD = 52·8 DY = 48

XY = 254·4

Shortest Route !!!!
