Three friends, A, B and C have houses along a straight road, in that order. If all three want to meet up at one of their houses, what is the minimum combined distance they need to travel?

(1)The distance between A’s house and B’s house is 2 miles.
(2) The distance between A’s house and C’s house is 8 miles.

I think it should be E since we arent sure if A,B,C are in line.It could ABC or CAB or BAC....etc

Three friends, A, B and C have houses along a straight road, in that order.

So the shortest way is to meet in B: the total distance is AB+BC=AC, so B is the correct answer
