    Answer:

    D.) He jogged 5 miles west and 12 miles north

    Step-by-step explanation:

    if you think of this as a right angled triangle, you are trying to work out the hypotenuse (longest side)

    the formula is a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}

    so, 5^{2} + 12^{2} = 169

    169 = the hypotenuse^{2}

    \sqrt{169} = 13 miles
