If you have a triangular arrangement...

difference of two sides < length of third side < sum of two sides

(1) 10 < l < 22, l=6 so this cannot be a sol'n

(2) 4 < l < 28, l = 12 this can be a sol'n

(3) 8 < l < 40, l = 24 this can be a sol'n

To clarify further the question states, the distance from cashier and dressing rooms are equal. So the arrangement would be isosceles triangle.

We can work through the choices and applying the formula we get the answer (E)

The cash register lies on the line that is the perpendicular bisector of the line connecting the two rooms. So the cash register is always >= 8feet from either of the rooms.
