Q.7 Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayub went from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much?
Distance travelled by Dinesh from A to C
= AB + BC = 7.5 km +- 12.7 km= 20.2 km
Distance travelled by Ayub from A to C
= AD + DC = 9.3 km + 11.8 km = 21.1 km
Since 21.1 km > 20.2 km.
Hence, Ayub travelled more distance.
