Planning a Grand Tour A grand tour of four cities begins at City A and makes successive stops at cities B, C, and D before returning to City A. If the cities are located as shown in the following figure, find the total distance covered on the tour. To determine

To find: The total distance covered on the tour.

Explanation

Given:

The given figure is shown below.

Figure (1)

Formula used:

The distance d between the points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is,

d=(x2x1)2+(y2y1)2 (1)

The distance traveled by suspect is,

d=d1+d2+d3+d4 (2)

Where,

d1 is the distance between (400,300)and(0,0) .

d2 is the distance between (800,800)and(400,300) .

d3 is the distance between (800,0)and(800,800) .

d4 is the distance between (0,0)and(800,0) .

d5 is the total distance covered on the tour.

Calculation:

The grand tour of four cities begins at City A(0,0) to B(400,300) .

Calculate the distance between the cities A and B.

Substitute 400 for x2 , 300 for y2 , 0 for x1 and 0 for y1 in equation (1), to calculate the distance.

d1=(4000)2+(3000)2=160000+90000=250000=500

Calculate the distance between the cities B(400,300) and C(800,800)
