**Sasha**, Monday, October 27, 2008 at 9:17pmYes, it probably is, but I have a hard time solving problems that involve 3-4-5 triangles or anything similar to that.

**Reiny**, Monday, October 27, 2008 at 9:17pmWow, Edna and Nancy walk for 16 km and 12 km??

Can't be in 2008, they would get in their SUV's for sure, lol

I see a right-angled triangle with sides 12 and 16, where you have to find the hypotenuse.

Think Pythagoras !
