    these all just use the Pythagorean Theorem, or the distance formula, which is the same.

    Just figure out the final location, and then use the formula.

    For #1,

    (0,0) -> (-10,0) -> (-10,-10)
    distance is √(10^2+10^2) = 14.1

    Using Pythagoras theorem the answer is 14.1 for question 1
