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?
