I used pythagorean theorem to figure out what way would be the fastest to get home from Crimson to their home Sunshine. They first went 6 miles west to the town of Happyville which 6 squared is 36. Then they went south and rode 8 miles to the town of Crimson, and 8 squared is 64. Both of them is 100, and the square root of 100 is 10 so it would be 10 miles. The fastest route is the road going from Crimson directly to Sunshine.
We should probably be getting back by now its going to be dark out soon.
Yeah that sounds good to me!
Yes, that's a good idea, we should take the road that goes directly back to Sunshine because it is a faster route.
That was fun, we should do it again, and the new road was a success we got back before it got dark out.
