I am confused with this problem could someone please explain?

Taxicab Distances Problem. 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 distance is called the taxicab distance. A cab driver estimates that traveling one block during rush hour takes about 5 minutes. What general rule can you use to find the taxicab distance between two points on a grid?

Thanks for the help.
