Im new to this and i know this must be a very simple problem. I cant seem to find any formulas for distance or a way of doing this problem. Most of the help sites give you the distance and want you to find something else. Could someone help me understand what i need to do to solve this. Thank you very much. Any tips, sites, or anything you can think of that would help me get through my courses and help me understand would be greatly appriciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
