On a map Town G is 10 centimeters due east of Town H and 8 centimeters due south of Town J. Which of the following is closest to the straight-line distance, in centimeters, between Town H and Town J on the map?
Well, the question is what the CLOSEST to the straight-line distance. The straight-line distance should be 164(sqrt), but it's not among the 5 choices. The CLOSEST to 164 (sqrt) is 13. However, 164(sqrt) should be the shortest distance. 13 is even smaller than the shortest distance. 18 would make more sense, but compared to 13, 18 is not the closest to 164 (sqrt). SO I think the answer should be 13 since it's the closest to 164(sqrt) anyway.
