Imagine that the grid lines on a
coordinate grid are streets and that the distance between two points
must be measured by the number of “blocks” a taxicab would have
to travel horizontally and vertically to get from one point to the
other. The sum of the horizontal and vertical distances is called the
taxicab distance. A cab driver estimates that traveling one block
during rush hour takes about 5 min.
Use the information to answer the question below:
What general rule can you use to find the taxicab distancebetween two points on a grid?
