Q 7 - Sangram started to move in the East direction in an open field and stopped after walking 25m. Now he turned to his right-hand side and walked 10 m. How much minimum distance he has to cover to reach his starting point?

Options :

A - 27m

B - 20m

C - 30m

D - 38m

Answer : A

Explanation

Here, we have to apply the Pythagoras theorem to get the answer. We will take the square of each number i.e. 25 and 10, which are 625 and 100 respectively. Next, we will add them and the result of addition is 725. Finally, we will take the square root of the addition and the result is 26.92 m. So, the minimum distance here is 27 m.
